During construction period or till the first sale, EPF and ESI will not be applicable. It will be applicable only from the date on which the number of employee exceed the required minimum of 10/20 after the sale bill is raised.
A contractor who engages less than 20 will not be covered by EPF/ESI by himself but since the establishment wherein the labours are deployed is covered by ESI and EPF the employees so deployed will be covered by ESI and EPF. If the contractor does not get registration, the establishment, being the principal employer, is bound to give coverage to the employees engaged through the contractor. In such cases, the employees of the contractor will be allotted PF account Numbers and ESI Code Numbers in the same running serials of the direct employees of the establishment.

When your main area of business itself is construction and you are constructing for others using your employees, the question of construction period does not apply. It is applicable to the establishment for which you are building the factory structure whereas for you it is the routine business. Therefore, you will come under the purview of ESI and EPF and all employees whose monthly wages do not exceed Rs 15000( now going to become 25000) should be brought under ESI. For exemption, just medical insurance is not sufficient. You are also covered by Pf and those whose basic wages do not exceed Rs 6500 should be brought under PF also. For this period of operation is immaterial and you are subject to coverage even if your contract will come to an end in one year
