Dear Members
We are a public limited company having its headquarters at Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh and is India’s largest private sector provider of seismic survey services to the rapidly growing oil exploration and production sector.

Our operations are majorly done in north east states of India, during which we engage few casual workers (Semi & Unskilled) ranging from 50-150 members. We are currently paying the a consolidated amount as wages which is in line with the minimum wages of that state.

My question is whether these workers will fall under the purview of various acts like PF, ESI & Bonus ? Request your advise.

1)ESI and PF applicable to casual employees also,
2)as per factory act (casual workers cal as workmen/employee) if you engage more than 20 employees with out aid of power and 10 employees with the aid of power,
3) if empolyee work even single day he/she comes under ESI and PF
