The Employees State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) on May 14, 2019, has given relaxation in due date of payment of ESI or EPF contribution in Odisha region. It relates to deposit of ESI contribution for the month of April, 2019 in 14 districts in the state of Odisha (Puri, Khurda, Cuttack, Jgatsinghpur, Kendrapara, Nayagarh, Jajpur, Bhadrak, Balasore, Mayurbhanja, Keonjhar, Ganjam, Angul and Dhenkanal). 

Regulation 31 of the Employees’ State Insurance (General) Regulations, 1950 provides an employer to pay contributions within 15 days of the last day of the calendar month, but due to the natural calamity in the form of severe cyclone “FANI” in Odisha, it has extended the period for depositing contribution to 45 days instead of 15 days for the contribution related to the month of April, 2019 only.
