You have register all employees with PF & ESI(For ESI- If their salary is below Rs10,000/-).
If the Empoloyees age is above the retirement age and they have already availed the PF benifits then you need not pay the PF for them.

But do remember the contract ahs to have a ESI/PF number he has to credit the account of the ESI/PF authorities and receive a "Challan" for the same, you will have to keep a copy /triplicate of this and when you are filing the return will have to display this too.
The contract workmen will be deemed to be your permanent workmen if you do any other the duties of the contractor on his behalf.
DO one thing tell him to give you the cheque for ESI and PF from his side and make your office boy deposit the same and receive the challan, remember friend this challan is very important.
1. fixation of age limit is company's prirogative. no statute is governed for this isue.
2. if the contract employees are under your contract then you should deduct PF. Pl refer the bdeinition clause of PF act.
3. As long as the employees under your employment and if their salary doent cross 10,000/- deduction of PF is manfatory.
thanks and kind regards
