:lol: We have entered into agreement with many transport agencies who are required to carry our finished goods and deilver them to our distributors located in various part of India. Them modus operandi is, the vehicle is called in the premises when the goods are ready for delivery. The driver with one suport enters the premises and takes the delivery and moves on. One vehicle hardly remains for Three hours in the premises. The question is what is our liability as a employer towards compliance of their PF and ESIC. (vehicles are not fully owned for us and we are not aware as to what happens to the vehicle after it makes our delivery) In an recent inspeciton of PF, the authorities have directed us to produce records of PF deducted for the transporters.
