CAIU/011(33)2015/HQ/Vol.II/28445 dated 2nd February 2017, where the the Principal employer should ensure that the contractor is registered with EPFO before awarding any Contract. After award of the contract, the contractor details should be entered in the EPFO portal. Payments due to the contractor should be made only after verifying that the statutory PF payments have been made to EPFO. This can be verified either directly from the EPFO portal or insisting on a payment receipt obtained by the contractor from the EPFO portal while making payment. If the contractors are having separate PF code number, the overall responsibility of ensuring the compliance under the EPF & MP Act, 1952 for the employees working through the contractors by deposit of the dues with the EPFO regularly, rests with the Principal employer. Principal employer can also deduct EPF dues from the contractors' bill and deposit the same either against the contractors' code number or their own code number
