The Temporary Identity Certificate (TIC) has been renamed as e-Pehchan Card. In respect of Insured Persons who have fed their Aadhaar numbers in the ESIC Database, this will serve as Permanent Identity Card in lieu of Biometric Pehchan Card and the Insured Person will not be required to get enrolled for Biometric Pehchan Card and the Insured Person will not be required to get enrolled for Biometric Pehchan Card.
In case the Biometric Aadhaar number is not fed, the e-Pehchan card will only be temporary and IP and his/her family will not be entitled for treatment beyond 30 days of registration. For getting medical treatment beyond 30 days either their Aadhaar number of the IP and his/her family need to be entered in the ESIC Data Base or IP have to get a Biometric Pehchan Card by visiting any Pehchan Camp.
In case the Aadhaar number is not entered, then he will have to carry any Government issued Photo Identity card along with e-Pehchan card for getting the treatment. In case of family member, if the Aadhaar number is not entered, a Government issued Photo Identity Card will have to be produced for getting the treatment.
In case IP is not willing to share Aadhaar number, IP has to be advised to visit a Pehchan Camp.
