Dear Sankaracharya,

Its not so easy to as we think of an organised employees. But where there is a will there is a way....the problem is these kind of employees 99% belongs to un educated and un willing for any deductions from their wages, as many of them will be either daily wages or weekly wages based only:

In such case only, certain things you have to ensure from the contractor:

Being a Principal Employer or the Construction Agency its better to adopt the following practical methods for a better and smooth applicability of the ESI Act, to avoid complications and problems during the Inspections:

01. Better to make a written agreement with the Contractors that they have to provide a list of employees and wages, when they demand for weekly/ daily wages:

02. Since every contractor by himself or through a Supervisor/mason etc., he supposed to monitor the worker progress on daily basis and better to advise them to maintain the same at the site and it should be a permanent record for the Construction Agency;

03. Every site will have their own mandatory security personnel...let the above things to be monitored by them primarily on behalf of the Principal Employer;

04. [Above All, its better to advice the Contractors, to get an individual ESI Code, thereby 50% of the problem will be solved, even though the primary and final responsibility of their workers compliance fall on Constructions Agency...but to some extent the things will be tracked;

But one thing its very sure that its NOT as EASY as we THINK.....

With regards,
