However, for internal control purpose, you can keep your own records. The best way to do it without getting possible trouble is to ask security to make them sign into a AMC Staff register for security purpose. That way you will know who has come, how many have come. And it's not a register so it's not coming on direct control under the contract labour law.

The Contractors (Agencies) are required to maintain all Registers including Attendance Register under Contract Labour Act & Rules, since employees are directly employed by Contractors and not by the PE. As per Rules , the Contractors are to maintain and retain all Registers / Records including Attendance Register at the site of Principle Employer where they are performing particular jobs in terms of agreement. So my suggestion is to keep the Attendance Register under the Contract Labour Rules at your Security Gate.
It is not advisable to have parallel Attendance Register for employees engaged by the Contractors. Please ensure that they should not sign on company papers / documents to be safe side else they may claim for permanent employment under Principle Employer.
