Karnataka Labour Welfare Fund Act is applicable to all establishments wherein ONE or more employees are working. The interpretation about 50 or more persons is wrong, I think.

Dear Mr Madhu Sir,
The Act is applicable for all Factories.Only in respect of Shops & Commercial Establishments & others it is applicable if the strength is 50 & above
7th February 2018 From India, New Delhi
Ok, I understand. Can you cite where it is shown in the Act that the Act is applicable to commercial establishments only if the number of employees exceeds 50 so that I can also direct my persons in Bangalore accordingly and avoid paying the contribution?
8th February 2018 From India, Kannur
OK Sir,Give me some time, i will send it to you
8th February 2018 From India, New Delhi
Read para 4 (iii) of The Karnataka Labour Welfare Fund Act, 1965 to clear your doubt about the applicability.
8th February 2018 From India, Thane
It is clear that as per section 4(iii) an establishment is one which employs more than 50 employees. At the same time an employer is one who employs at least one person. Ok, it is clear. Thank you

Dear All,
Thank you so much for the information. Our organizations is less than 50 members hence I understand we need not pay Lwf till we cross 50.
