This Ramu working as DM-HR in manufacturing sector. Our management has given unit expansion project to L&T company. Accordingly L&T has obtained Contract Labour license. L&T is engaging so many sub contractors for building construction works on piece rates. As per our terms and conditions, L&T has agreed to pay statutory contributions (PF &ESI) in their code only. Statutory records which is required under CLRA Act (Form-A, B, C, &D) also maintaining by L&T. All sub-contract workmen also enrolled in the L&T records
My query is that
Now L&T is offering some portion of work is to " ABC" company. ABC company is denying to remit the statutory contributions in L&T code and said that if we allow like that our PF & ESI codes will be null values till completion of the work.
Then we may be questioned by PF & ESI enforcement authorities for non payment of contributions.
kindly give us your valuable advice on this issue how to follow.
