It's not clear to me. Why contractor should pay to the employees ? Actually it's a levy on professions/employment. It's to be recovered from the salary/wages of employees and remitted to the govt. as per the slab rates notified by the concerned state govts from time to time. Some states don't levy Professional Tax at all, such as Delhi. The slab rates varies from state to state. And there are exemption upto certain limits. Ofcourse if the contractor agrees to bear the PT applicable and disburse salary/wages without cutting from them is a different issue. Legally employees have no right to claim back the PT if recovered from their salary/wages.

Greetings of the day !!!!!!!!
The contractor is not deducting any money as PT from Contract Labours , who are drawing wages more than the specified level.
The contractor has a registration and enrollment number, he has to deduct the same from wages of workers and deposit it to the PT authority.
Can it be justified.
