We will have to examine your appointment letter, incase your appointment letter has a terms and condition regarding ESI or 45 paid leaves the we suggest you to send the company a legal notice through a lawyer and thereby demanding your ESI and 45 days.

Incase they fail to give  your dues despite legal notice, then file a complaint before the Labour commissioner.
