This will be the first scheme brought about a particular disease, in which financial help will be given to the families of employees who die due to corona disease.
Dr. Sharma says that the special thing about this scheme is that the eligibility or eligibility has been kept very simple for those who take advantage of it. So that if after the death of the employees contributing to ESIC from Corona, their family can easily get the benefit of it.
