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.
