Tender is an invitation to offer under the Indian Contract Act. Therefore, registration as principal employer under the CLRA Act,1970 can not be a qualifying factor for calling for tenders.To understand the correctness of my above answer for your query, you may refer to sections 1(4), 2(1)(b), 2(1)(c), 2(1)(e) and 2(1)(i) of the CLRA Act,1970 throwing light on the application of the Act, definitions of the terms contract labour, contractor, establishment and workman respectively. Likewise, you may also refer to sec.7 of the Act dealing with registration of establishments to which the Act stands applicable and Sec.9 dealing with the effect of non-registration.

As per my understanding of the act, the act would apply to any Principal Emplloyer who employ more than 20 workmen. So if the contract would require less than 20 workmen, the PE need not be registered under CLRA.
