Hi, I am working in senior position in textile industry. I am having qurry about contract labours. Can we give maintenence / machine repair work in contract basis. M.M. Kulkarni
Mr.Kulkarni, Yes you can give the work in contract basis. What is the problem in that. Regards Eswar.K
Good Day,
As far I know Yes your Company can award a Service/Maintenance purchased order to respective company, in Statement of Work or Scope of Work should clearly mention what to do and what needs not to.
Even in purchased or you can mention period of Maintenance or Service from 1-1-2012 to 1-1-2013.
Thank you,

Hello M.M. Kulkarni,
Eswar.K & M.Sayeed are right--but can you pl mention the reason(s) for this query? There seems to be more than a plain query in your statement.
Also, there are some precautions that would need to be taken while awarding the contract(s) for O&M--more on it after your clarification(s).

Dear All,
Thanks for response. The detials are - As per Contract Act (Abolition and Prevention of Contract Labour Act) we can not engage regular workers on contract basis who are connected with production activities. Therefore normally sweeping, security, housekeeping, canteen work is given on contract. But some part of maintenance dept. like preventive maintenance, breakdown maintenance etc. can be given on contract basis. The basic intention of engaging contract labours is to avoid lithary of regular workers and reduce monetory laibilities.

Hello M.M. Kulkarni,
I think M.Sayeed's response should be addressing your concerns?
Pl confirm so that a way out can be found to handle your problem--I know it can be done [have done it earlier in my career], but not sure of the relevant Acts.
