New Delhi, Sep 24 (PTI) In July this year, 13.21 lakh new members joined the Social Security Scheme of the Employees’ State Insurance Corporation (ESIC).

According to the data, in aggregate, 10.72 lakh new members were added to the ESIC scheme in April, 8.87 lakh in May and 10.58 lakh in June.

The NSO also said that the report gives a different perspective about the level of employment in the organized sector and does not assess the job as a whole.
