Both are different acts. You have to follow both the acts. BOCW Welfare Cess is remitted to the Factories Inspectorate and the Labour Welfare Fund Cess is remitted to the Labour Commissionerate. BOCW welfare facilities are available only those who have become the beneficiaries. But the LWF can be claimed without any hurdle and only the construction site authorities has to certify about the employment of the worker.

With due respect to you Sir, I would like to correct you as under:
Authority under both the enactments may vary from State to State. In some States, the authority under BOCW is Labour Commissionarate. LWF is managed by a separate board under Labour Department which is not under Labour Commissionarate, to my knowledge.
BOCW welfare facilities are available to construction workers who are beneficiaries under the Act.
LWF is applicable to all the industries including Construction. For welfare facilities under BOCW, the construction site authorities certification is required.
