I think this bond needs to be signed by each contract labour who will be working in our premises. This is not actually for taking action on them, but to bring awareness that they should not do any indisciplined activities. HR EXPERTS REQUEST YOU TO PLEASE GIVE YOUR INPUTS.

Dear Sir, The draft which you shared with us is good, I am sharing the draft which we use while engaging contact labour.
I do not think such a document has any validity or any actual legal standing.
If he violates the "Bond", what action can you take against him ?
Any of the actions taken can be taken any way as they would be violations of the Standing Orders or Safety Rules.
At best, this will be a way of educating the workers on the evils of some behaviour.
I think instead a proper training session covering these points and what they actually mean is more important. Like, tell me, have you actually given the complete safety training to the employees ? Do they know all the safety rules and why they are to be followed
(some of the companies we do work with have a policy of compulsory 3 day training for every new contract worker before they are allowed into the actual work are)

If we look to the licence issued to the Principle Employer under Contract Labour (R. R) Act, they are issued to some sundry work such as loading-unloading, painting, gardening, packing etc., and in reality the contract labour is used mainly for the production. It is also issued on the context that, it is not possible for the Principle Employer to use his permanent workers and so the contract worker required to be engaged. On this back drop, if we consider the above Pratidnya-Patra which is to be endorsed by the contract worker, it appears that the papers are only made look nice without the taking any meaning or substance to them. In the declaration a few things are mentioned such as discipline, diligence, no theft, safety rules etc. Why not also add that the provisions of Constitution, Indian Penal Code, Contract Act, Factories Act, ESI Act, PF Act and all such acts are binding on him and that in case of its violation, he is punishable.?

Rules of discipline, good behaviour, diligence, good conduct, safety rules, regularity and punctuality etc. became automatically binding on the worker. There is no need to have a declaration from him to that effect. Instead, it is better to have a booklet having rules of guidance, in cases of emergency what he has to take care of, first-aid help, etc. This will help the contract worker to get himself trained and because of which there are chances of self discipline. The Principle employer may organize training camps to educate them and thus increase industrial literacy.

Mere getting declarations on paper may not be a correct answer.

Hi dear please use either hindi or english for this because we cant understand this nobal
Hi Dear,
I think it is not a draft to be employed under contractor workers. I think it is the way to educate employees to perform batter behavior in company premises.
If you are preventing your organization any worker union or workforce dispute you need to make right policies accordingly. While Mr. Kulkarni have state clearly there is no need such a draft.

This is not acceptable in the course of law. hence, there should be an agreement between Contractor and Principal Employeer mentioning all the terms and conditions of company. Also this should be executed on a stamp paper of Rs. 500/- so that it will be helpful in case of any indiscipline things as well as court cases in future.
