 ESIC to Introduce Schemes in 3 North-Eastern States: Minister Bandaru Dattatreya

Union Minister of state for Labor and Employment Bandaru Dattatreya reported that 'The Employees' State Insurance Corporation' (ESIC) would introduce health service schemes for workers in three north-eastern states including Mizoram, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

Dattatreya said, "A 10-bed dispensary and 30-bed hospital would be set up in Mizoram by the ESIC. The union government is keen to resolve the problems of the north-eastern states through visits by central ministers to the region and by not sitting in national capital Delhi."

The ESIC is an apex corporate body that provides integrated social security schemes to workers. It offers protection to workers and their dependents in case of sickness, maternity and death or disablement due to occupational diseases. Currently, about 186 lakh workers, or 67% of the country's organized sector workforce, are covered by ESIC schemes.
