Employees’ Insurance Court

The Employees’ Insurance Court or better known as the EI Court is located in Kolkata covering the entire jurisdiction of West Bengal entertaining any dispute related to the Employees’ State Insurance Act, 1948. This Court accepts applications filed against the order passed under Section 45A of the ESI Act by the ESI Corporation, either challenging the coverage of a company or alleged contribution or both. Apart from these “insured persons” under the ESI Act can also file cases claiming medical benefit and compensation. Since there is only one EI Court covering the entire jurisdiction of West Bengal, it always remains overburdened with work.
