My intention of raising the thread is to identify the difficulties in implementing all the above relevant acts and simplifying them, so that we need not to forgo any act willingly due to repetition / multiplication of work.
We must issue the Wages Slip to all the workers, as per Contract Labour Act, Minimum Wages Act and BOCW Act. But all are having different Form Number.
We must prepare the Wages Register to all the workers as per Contract Labour Act, BOCW Act, ISMW Act, Minimum Wages Act and Payment of Wages Act. But all are having different Format and Form Number.
We must maintain the Register of workmen employed as per CL Act, BOCW Act, ISMW Act. But all are different format and different Form Number
We must maintain the Register of Advances, Register of Fine, Register of loss or damages as per Payment of Wages Act, MW Act, BOCW Act, CL Act. But all are having different Format and Form numbers.
These are all few of the controversial form of work being implemented by the appropriate governments. Further the Formats are differing from state to state and state to Central.
A single and simple essential forms and formats can help all the organisations to maintain all the statutory compliance, so that their incidental expenditure can be kept in minimal level.

"If two or more acts are applicable to a particular establishments, then we need to maintain the registers under any one of the act and not all the acts, which has been clarified in all the acts. Then, why you need to write all those things again.
You may refer various other welfare measures, which require real clarity like lime washing of inner wall of a canteen dining hall, wherein we need to lime wash the inner walls of dining hall once in a year as per CLRA Act and ISMW Act but as per BOCW Act, we need to lime wash once in six months.
Rest Room facilities and Washing facilities are not specified in BOCW Act but are specified in other Acts.
Creche and Accommodation facilities are not specified in CLRA Act but are specified in other Acts.
As per BOCW Act, we need to provide canteen only when the strength of building workers crosses 250 but as per CLRA Act and ISMW Act, it is 100."
The above details are also can be used for further argument.

As per BOCW Act the Canteen must be white washed in every 6 months. Whereas as per other acts, it should be white washed yearly once.
As per BOCW Act if the Distance of Canteen is more than 250 meters, then the eatables must be supplied at the work place. But there is no such provision available in CL Act and ISMW Act.
May I expect our other learned members also take active participation in this controversial subject.
