Dear Arti Bhatt
There are two things available. One is Labour Welfare Fund and another one is Building & Other Construction Workers Welfare Cess.
The first one is to be paid as per the Labour Strength and the per head rate will be fixed by the State.
The second one is to be paid as per the Contract Value (Minimum 1% and Maximum 2%). The percentage of Cess will be fixed by the State Government.
Both are giving benefits to the workers.
Please be specific about your querry. Accordingly you will get reply.
Both are applicable for all construction activities, including civil, electrical, plumbing, interior, landscaping, fabrication, rigging, piling, excavation etc.
