Dear Mr. Anil,
Can you share amendment made by Andhra Pradesh Govt. in CL Act in 2003, in respect of clarification of Jobs / Activities in connection with its perennial nature of work.
Rahul Bagale
3rd November 2010 From India, Mumbai

The State amendment of Andhra Pradesh in 2003 which introduced a clause restraining the employment of Contract Labour in core activities of any establishment if the same was prohibited by Notification .But it introduced the following exemptions.

[a]. The normal functioning of the establishments is such that the activity is ordinarily done through contractors; or

[b]. The activities are such that they do not require full time workers for the major portion of the working hours in a day or for longer periods, as the case may be;

[c] Any sudden increase of volume of work in the core activity which needs to be accomplished in a specified time"

Also the Andhra Pradesh Amendment introduced a definition clause for "core activities" of an establishment meaning as any activity for which establishment is set up which includes any activity which is essential or necessary to the core activity and it again provides certain exceptions which are follows:-

1]. Sanitation works, including sweeping, cleaning, dusting and collection and disposal of all kinds of waste;

2]. Watch and ward services including security service;

3]. Canteen and catering services;

4]. Loading and unloading operations;

5]. Running of hospitals, educational and training institutions, guest houses, clubs and the like where they are in the nature of support services of an establishment;

6]. Courier services which are in nature of support services of an establishment;

7]. Civil and other constructional works, including maintenance;

8]. Gardening and maintenance of lawns, etc;

9]. Housekeeping and laundry services, etc., where they are in nature

support services of an establishment;

10]. Transport services including ambulance services;

11]. Any activity of intermittent in nature even if that constitutes a

core activity of an establishment; and

12]. Any other activity which is incidental to the core activity.

Also a rider was introduced by the Andhra Pradesh Amendment that the above 12 activities by themselves should not be the core activities of such establishment.

It must be noticed that the Andhra Pradesh Amendment has force only in Andhra Pradesh State and not in the rest of the Country.

Dear Kaushik ji
My query is , we have a RC under Contract labour (R&A) Act , 1970 but one of the contractor in our RC have only 7 workmen (his total company strength is 7). In this case what is the liability of Contractor as well as principal employer for ESI & PF compliance. If yes how can we comply it.

Dear Manoj,
Assuming that your establishment is covered under ESI and PF, PE(Principal Employer) is lable for both in respect of ESI and PF of labour employed by contractor irrespective of the fact how much labour he deploys.

Dear Kaushik ji
I understand that ESI, PF compliance is liability of PE, but in this case can we leave the contractor free ? & who will remit the employer part of contribution, it should be deducted from contractor bill or by PE itself.

2nd May 2011 From India, Delhi
Mr. Anil I just want to get one thing clear that suppose if I have a production unit where i have outsourced the transportation of finished goods to some other agency. and the drivers do their work in the company premises tough the loading and unloading part is by machinery so do the contract labour act still applies to my company.
Plz. Let Me know
6th May 2011 From India, Pune
Dear Rahul,
If the drivers so engaged are working exclusively for you , then they will be under the umbrella of CLA. And if they are independent and also working for others during the day apart from your assignment, they will not attract CLA.
