Regarding Labour License For Other State Labours To Work In Different State - CiteHR

Dear Seniors,
I have question regarding labour license. If as a company we take get labours from states like M.P., jharkhand or Rajasthan and supply to different states like kochi, orissa & Mangalore than we have to take labour license from state from where we are getting labour but what about state where we are supplying labours. Do we have to take license for thos states also?
Labours will be skilled, Unskilled or semi-skilled male & female for civil & mechanical work.
Estimates labour supply will be 200.
kindly guide me for the same.

Dear Trusha,
Since you are supplying your laborers to Kerala you have to take labour license in kerala as well since your employee are working in kerala provided there are more than 20 laborers working.

Dear Trusha16,
You are engaging workmen from one State to another. Workmen engaged from one State to another are called as Inter-State Migrant Workmen. There is an enactment called The Inter-State Migrant Worken (Regulation of Employment & Conditions of Service) Act 1979 to regulate the employment of such Workmen.
You are requested to read this enactment and follow the provisions.
You may also view earlier postings on this subject by me and othet learned members to get clarity in matter.
I have restricted my self to respond your query with clear intention so that other members contribute in this.

Dear Trusha,

Our senior and respected member Sh Keshav Korgaonkar has rightly mentioned that the workmen engaged from one State to another are called as Inter-State Migrant Workmen and their employment is regulated under the provisions of the the Inter-State Migrant Worken (Regulation of Employment & Conditions of Service) Act, 1979 and the state rules made thereunder.Though it is little complicated Act and will be difficult to grasp the same as a laymen,the gist of Act is as under:-

1. The Act applies to every establishment wherein FIVE or more interstate migrant workmen are employed and to every contractor who employs

five or more interstate migrant worker.

2. An interstate migrant worker means any person who is recruited by or through a contractor in the ONE state under an agreement or arrangement for employment in an establishment in ANOTHER state, whether with or without the knowledge of the principal employer.

3.The Pricipal employer will register his establishment and the contractor shall obtain licence as done under Contract Labour (R&A) Act,1970. 4. The contractor shall ensure regular payment, equal pay for equal work irrespective of sex, suitable conditions of work, medical facilities, protective clothing etc to such workmen.

5. The contractor shall maintain register of migrant employees, send report of accidents, half yearly returns (Form 23) and annual returns (Form 24).
