The NSO has been releasing the payroll data or new subscribers data of these three bodies since April 2018 covering a period starting from September 2017.

The report showed that gross new enrolments with the ESIC during September 2017 to March 2018 were 83.32 lakh.

It showed that a net 9.86 lakh new enrolments with the Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) were recorded during the month of May which was slightly lower than 10.15 lakh in April this year.

During 2018-19, 61.12 lakh new subscribers on a net basis joined the social security schemes run by the EPFO. Similarly, the net new enrolments were 15.52 lakh during September 2017 to March 2018.

It said that since the numbers of subscribers are from various sources, there are elements of overlap and the estimates are not additive.

The NSO said in the report that the present report gives different perspectives on the levels of employment in the formal sector and does not measure employment at a holistic level.
