One client of mine is having 50 enmployees under different contractors,, but does not have the pf, esi registration, can i pay pf esi, being his hr consultant? If not, why? if i pay only pf, esi shall i have to pay service tax on the entire salary or only on my invoice value?

Yes, you can pay the Pf, ESI on behalf of your client, but not in your personal capacity. they are the benefits provided with the salary, not separately...
So, you can not deal with it separately........

Dear Mr Kalpajeet,
The ESI and EPF is payable by the employer either immediate or principal. Therefore either your client can pay or the contractors have to pay it. If any one contractor is engaging 20 or more workmen then EPF will apply and if the establishment is in notified area, then ESI will be applicable to any factory or establishment engaging 10 or more employees. However if the wages are in excess of 15000INR then ESI will not apply.

Employer will have to pay his contribution of PF and ESI contributions after getting recovered from employees share. Whenever total employees strength ( even through various contractor) exceeds these act apply. Its failure may lead to prosecution of employer. You will have to take in to account whether area is notified and wage limits for necessary deductions. You can pay on behalf of your client.
