I agree with Madhu TK,as a principal employer,you have all the right to deposite the PF and ESI contribution of contarctor employees wroking at your palce.
I would like to add that,you need to ensure that you have registered the contractor in FORM-1 even he has less than 20 contract labour working with him.Please also ensure that you get a letter and an affidavit from contractor declaring that he does not have PF and ESI code no and wants to utilise yours to meet compliances.You shuld have seprate challan from contarctor for his employees and his cheque should be used for remittance.
At no point of time it should appear that you as employer is supervising their activity. It should only appear you as a facilitator to the contarctor for compliance purpose.
