Employees' State Insurance (Central) Rules, 1950

57. Disablement benefits

(1) A person shall be qualified to claim disablement benefits for temporary disablement for not less than three days (excluding the days of accident) for the period of such disablement sustained as an employee under the Act.

(2) A person shall be qualified to claim periodical payment for permanent disablement sustained as an employee under the Act, whether total or partial, for such disablement:

PROVIDED that where permanent disablement, whether total or partial, has been assessed provisionally for a limited period or finally, the benefit provided under this rule shall be payable for that limited period, or as the case may be, for life.

(3) (a) The daily rate of disablement shall be forty per cent more than the standard benefit rate specified in rule 54 rounded to the next higher multiple of five paise corresponding to the average daily wages in the contribution period corresponding to the benefit period in which the employment injury occurs.

(b) Where an employment injury occurs before the commencement of the first benefit period in respect of a person, the daily rate of disablement shall be-

(i) where a person sustains employment injury after the expiry of the first wage period in the contribution period in which the injury occurs, the rate, forty per cent more than the standard benefit rate rounded off to the next higher multiple of five paise corresponding to the wage group in which his average daily wages during that wage period fall;

(ii) where a person sustains employment injury before the expiry of the first wage period in the contribution period in which the injury occurs, the rate, forty per cent more than the standard benefit rate, rounded off to the next higher multiple of five paise corresponding to the group in which wages are actually earned or which would have been earned, had he worked for a full day on the date of accident, fall.

Explanation: The disablement benefit calculated as aforesaid shall be called the "full rate".

(4) The disablement benefits shall be payable to the insured person as follows:-

(a) for temporary disablement, at the full rate;

(b) for permanent total disablement, at the full rate;

(c) for permanent partial disablement resulting from an injury specified in Part II of the Second Schedule, at such percentage of the full rate which would have been payable in the case of permanent total disablement, as specified in the said Schedule as being the percentage of the loss of earning capacity caused by the injury;

(d) for permanent partial disablement resulting from an injury not specified in Part II of the Second Schedule, at such percentage of the full rate payable in the case of permanent total disablement as is proportionate to the loss of earning capacity permanently caused by the injury.

Explanation : Where more injuries than one are caused by the same accident, the rate of benefit payable under clauses (c) and (d) shall be aggregated but not so in any case as to exceed the full rate and in cases of disablement not covered by clauses (a), (b), (c) and (d) at such rate, not exceeding the full rate, as may be provided in the regulations.
