Incidentally, the concerned worker can still claim his PF outstanding irrespective of the contributions have been deposited or not by the contractor or not. It is for the PF Office how to recover the dues from Employer. PF Office cannot deny the claim on the pretext that contributions are not deposited. I will advice the worker to move the District Consumer's redresssal Forum (Consumer Court) for the relief.

Thank you for your valuable suggestion. As you suggested to make payment from the Principal Employer and get repayed by the contractor by withholding his bill but that contractor is no more working with us. In this Situation what action can be made. Kindly request you to help me to solve this problem as early as possible
