Dear Legal Gurus,
Our co. is working for X co at PAN INDIA level. As per the contract we have construct,install,commission the telecom sites and hand over the same to our customer.Our other team works for the servicing of the sites and for operation & maintenance of the sites for the given contract period. For construction,installation and commissioning we have vendors who work for us . For servicing and operation and maintenance of sites we have three agencies who outsource manpower on PAN INDIA basis .Now my queries are:-
1) As per the above X Co. is the principal Employer.Are we the principal employer for the three manpower outsourcing agencies.
2) When we will be getting the licence bases on the registeration and Form V issued by Co. X then will we get the licence as per no. of sites or as per the state. ( E.g. if we have 15000 sites all over India then do we need to get 15000 licences)
3) For services and Operation & Maintenance our one technician takes care of approx 10 sites and may be in a area of 15 to 30 kms. So at any particular sites less than 20 workmen are present then are they still covered under the said Act.
Thanks & Regards,
