Would have been better had you mentioned the type of your industry and its major activity.
The concept of " Appropriate Government " comes into play only when a Central Labor Law is administered and enforceable by both the Central Government and the State Governments without any overlapping with reference to the nature or constitution of the industry covered by the Act or its geographical location. For example,the Apprentices Act,1961,the Industrial Disputes Act,1947, the Minimum Wages Act,1948 the payment of wages Act,1936, the Contract labor (R&A)Act,1970 etc.,
The enforcement of certain Central Labor Laws like the Industries (Development and Regulation)Act,1951, the Mines Act,1952 etc., are within the domain of the Central Govt only. Hence, no classification of appropriate govt under these laws for any purpose.
The implementation or enforcement of certain Central Labor Laws like the Beedi and Cigar Workers ( Conditions of Employment ) Act,1966, the Bonded Labor System ( Abolition ) Act,1976, the Factories Act,1948 etc., are specifically entrusted to with State Govts only in respect of their territories. Hence no mention of appropriate govt in these enactments.

Your head office would be an establishment under the State's Shops and Establishments Act where it is situated. Since your entire activities emanate from the head office, in my personal opinion, you can file consolidated returns covering all the employees both head office and contract sites relating to the Acts mentioned in the original post to the State Government.
At the same time you would be an individual contractor under the CLRA Act,1970 in respect of each contract you enter into with different principal employers. The appropriate govt in respect of yourself as a contractor pertaining to particular contracts would be the State or Central Govt from whom you have to obtain contractor's licence on the basis of Principal employer's registration. Therefore, you have to submit the half-yearly return to every such Licensing Officer of the app.govt who issued the licence to you.
