2.The Drivers should be paid applicable State Minimum Wages
My question is since we are follwing the central PF rules for their PF , why we can not insist the contractor to pay the wages as per central Govt rules .
(2) Agsinst each vehicle minimum one driver is engaed by the contractor , drivers are the employees of the Contractors and the Admn control of the driver rest on the corporation .
(3) The Contract labour (Regulation and Abolition ) Act 1970 Cl 2 (b) may plase be reffered to . As per the provision " Workmen shall be deemed to be employed ..........when he is hired in or in connetion with such work by or through a contractor with or without the knowledge of the principal employer"
2. If you PSU is registered as employer under state contract labour Act and also the contractor, in that case state minimum wages will be applicable.
3. If you are paying contractor as per central MW, you must insist and the employees must get the benefit. Although you are paying om lump sum basis, you must have arrived at the figure after some calculations.
Principal Employer is remitting PF Contribution to PF Office or Trust?
Contractor is remitting PF Contribution to PF Office or Trust?
Please Clarify "we are follwing the central PF rules?
you have admitted that you are paying Contractors on Lump sum basis.Please refer to the Tender/Quotation wherein the Contractor has given the breakup? Whether Contractor has included Minimum Wages of State/Central Govt
Pl go through your agreement. If you are hiring vehicle for a predecided mileage on monthly or yearly basis, you are having liability as principal employer only. Regarding wages payment, if your company is having more than 50% shares held by Central Govt, than Central minimum wage otherwise state minimum wage.The contractor can change driver at his will and you have no role in it as per the contract since you are hiring only vehicle. Hope the issue is clarified.
