Respected Santosh Kumar Sir,

     I am one of million software employees of India and resident of Bengaluru. I deeply acknowledge your vision for India and empowering all of us. We see number of reforms in the labor laws and I am grateful for improving the unemployment benefit scheme for all ESIC (Employees State Insurance Corporation) holders for 90 days pay benefit from 25% to 50% and extending it till june 30th 2021. As pandemic impacted many industries, businesses, people such kind of schemes benefit many to some extent. Many companies are still struggling to run and there is workforce reduction. CMIE Study clearly asserts these facts as well. While it is unavoidable, abruptly terminating the employees pushes their families into dire state and given the situation takes few more months to recover, addressing this at this hour is needed.

    As you may already know many companies (ex: IT and IT based services) are not part of such scheme or equivalent schemes are not in place. Not every company can provide reverence packages in current condition when they terminate their employees. In the absence of that, requesting you to stand for the families of people who are affected by the pandemic. Many countries USA, Europe has adopted unemployment insurance schemes for larger part of citizens in their respective countries. in india, ESI applicability is limited to factories and highest salary is limited to Rs 21,000/- (reference).  This limit eliminate most of the IT/ITES employees as well. I would like to share couple of ideas for your perusal in altering this situation for all employees India. I am sure, you would be kind enough to consider them for better India.

1. Having a policy that each company should provide a temporary relief (repayable in installments later) for those who are affected by pandemic or unforeseen situations.

(and / or)

2. Extending ESIC or equivalent schemes to all companies operating in india by respective law amendment.

This helps the millions of employees of India and also provides social security to those who are already working. You can reduce the people suffering in addition to pandemic by providing social security. Along with millions like me, we urge you to provide the necessary safety net for our future generations. Would like to extend our thanks for the commendable work by your ministry so far.

Thank you
