As our client insisted us we have done the registration under BOCW Act. Here in Gujarat Factories Inspector is empowered to lookafter BOCW Compliance. Whereas in Andhra Pradesh Labour Officer has been empowered to look after BOCW Compliance.
Thanks for your reply.
With warm regards

2. If an employer/owner incorporate until unless he start construction on site he is not required any BOCW regn. And if Regn obtained for a particular site then if you are going to construct another site you have to take different regn for the particular site.
3.After completion of building you have(Owner of building) to pay 1% cess
4. I am also working at Tata Motor vendor Park(Ahmedabad-Nano Project) mostly of vendors not paid the cess at the time of construction they are pyaying now at the time of geting factory act license

#AnonymousDear Mr. Vinod,
The worker who has worked in construction industry for last 90 days is eligible to get registered. Unfortunately the workers are migrants in most cases. So if worker from Orissa has worked for 90 days in his home state and registered he would get benefits only in his own state.
If after registering as worker he shifts to Delhi then he will have to work again for 90 days to get himself registered as worker by paying fees.
There is no central database of workers so benefits can be given in any state. A big lacuna in the system.
In addition the workers are required to produce documents like Aadhar Card,ration Card and certificate from Contractor ( that they worked with him for 90 days).
It is impossible to get it for daily wage workers in some states. The Contractors are afraid to give it.
If you see the website of Maharashtra for registration of workers it is in english
