WELCOME TO ESIC PUNE’S ONLINE RETURN
OF CONTRIBUTION PREPARATION MODULE
You are required to create your profile and your user ID to be able to use the software:
Preparing the Return of Contribution using this
software is simple and hassle free. The software is easy to work with. Please go through this whole page minutely
and read the following instructions carefully. Also, please take a print out of
this page and keep it handy while creating your profile.
For the purpose of logging in, you can select the username
of your choice, provided the same is not already selected by somebody. You are,
therefore, required to check its availability. When you read this page
completely and click the link provided at the bottom of this page, you will be
directed to the "Check availability of username" page.
If the username chosen by you is already registered, a warning message will
appear saying that “This username is not available”.
If the username chosen by you is not already registered, you will be directed to
“Create your profile” page.
Please provide necessary information in all the fields that appear on this page.
In case your factory/establishment is registered in SRO Pune and you have a
Branch/ Sales Office situated elsewhere in an area falling under the
jurisdiction of SRO Pune and you have obtained a Sub Code No. for it, you are
required to create separate profile for each of such Branch/Sales Office in
addition to the profile in respect of your main factory/establishment. For
example, if your factory/establishment is situated at Chinchwad and you have a
Branch/Sales Office at Bibwewadi and you have obtained a Sub Code No. for that
Branch/Sales Office, you are required to create two separate profiles; one for
your factory/ establishment and another for your Branch/Sales Office.
Further, while creating such profiles you have to use two different usernames
one for your main factory/establishment and another for your Branch/Sales
Office. In short, every profile you create will have to use a different
username. In case you try to create the profile for your Branch/Sales Office
using the same username which you have used for creating the profile in respect
of your main factory/ establishment, an error message will appear and you will
not be allowed to create any more profiles using that username.

with our challan database. In case, no matching credit is found in our challan database, a
remark "Credit not received" will appear in the 1st page of RC. There could be
