Dear csn,
As far as Central labour laws are concerned, you are ok complying with those at Chennai after registration at central office of those laws but state labour laws have to be complied with as per state law.
As far as Delhi shops and establishment act is concerned then not to worry for this and till now you are required to comply for the registration without any late payment for registration in the Delhi under Delhi shops and Establishment Act. You have to keep the records in the prescribed form G and H and certain other criteria is to be followed of the enacted law.
If still any query then contact me for Delhi /NCR.

Dear CSN,
In addition of Central Taxation Laws (direct tax, indirect tax, service tax, excise and customs), you have to comply the state taxation laws ( value added tax, stamp duty Act, State excise duty) as well as local body (MCD, NDMC, DDA) taxes applicable as per the nature of business.
I am attaching the list of Labour laws of central and state enacted in india and you have to comply them as per the applicability on your nature of business.
Your company secretary will comply the company returns of the brach office as well and so not to worry for the same.
Applicability of laws on your nature of business will be clear after knowing your trade/ business nature.

Dear CSN,

I am replying with respect to the labour law legislation applicability with respect to Delhi state as below:-

1. With respect to The Employees’ State Insurance Act, 1948 and The Employees’ Provident fund and Miscellaneous Provisions Act,1952 , there is no problem for the record being kept at the chennai office being the central Acts and authorities too.

2. Wtih respect to the following Acts, no state legislation has taken place and the central acts are accepted and implimented by the central labour officers in Delhi.

a)The Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Act, 1970

b)The Equal Remuneration Act, 1976.

c)The Industrial Disputes Act, 1947

d)The Payment of Bonus Act, 1965

e)The Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972

With respect to sl no-2 acts and their applicability you may maintain the records at the chennai office and in soft copy so that you may show the records to the inspecting authorities when ever is required. Display the relevant Annexures at the Notice board as stipulated in the Acts and Rules.

3. With respect to the following Acts, State authorities are implimenting authorities:

a) The Minimum Wages Act, 1948

b)The Payment of Wages Act, 1936

c)The Maternity Benefit Act, 1961

d)The Industrial Employment (Standing Orders) Act, 1946

e)The Workmen’s Compensation Act, 1923

f)Delhi Shops and Commercial Establishment Act, 1954

Sl No-2 & 3 above are the State List of labour law implimentation and their compliances have to be made in Delhi. However you may comply them at Chennai office but keep the records in the soft copy to show to the inspecting authorities whenever required. Display the relevant part of the Annexures at the Notive Board as stipulated in Acts and Rules.

For any further query you may contact me.

Dear Mr.Phogat,
Goodafternoon. Thankyou very much for all the valuable information provided by you. I have no words to thank you. I am very grateful and highly obliged for your answers to my query.
Pls reply to one more query - am i required to register my office with NDMC or its not required as my business nature is of service provider and it being the branch office.
Otherwise from all the discussions between us i conclude that this branch office has nothing additional laws to comply with, all can be done at head office, chennai and copy of same to be kept in branch office.
Thanking you in advance for your reply to the above query.
thanks and brgds

Dear CSN,
You have to register your self with the Delhi shops and commercial establishment Act, 1954, and more over if you run the office for 365 days a year then you have to apply for the Exemption under section 14, 15 and 16 of this act. Also you have to apply to the labour commissioner for keeping the records in the soft copy rather then hard copy so that you may not face any problem in operation.
In addition to the above, other state labour laws have to be complied with in due course and not immediate.
