We are main contractor and have sub contractors for construction work of client. Apart from some regular workers contractors hire most of the workers on daily wages. To some he is paying @ minimum rate i.e. Rs. 202/- skilled and Rs. 187 unskilled but for some he is showing in wages register Rs. 6600/- so that PF liability is avoided, is it possible ? We told him that if he is paying on monthly basis then it should be reflected as Basic+DA+HRA+allowances. Which way is correct. Generally we say contractor to submit PF/ESIC challans on daily manpower deputed at site.

dear mr chauhan,
First of all compliance of ESI and EPF will be very essential if the laws are attracted, say the acts are applicable. It is in your interest to ensure compliances of these laws since the activity is construction and ultimately the principal employer is held liable. So pleasure ask the sub contractor to comply with these laws strictly.
I have labour contract and i pay to workers of Rs.850/- daily so PF deduction are necessary?
