You will have to see the definition of 'Establishment' to ascertain the position:
(j) "establishment" means any establishment belonging to, or under the control of, Government, any body corporate or firm, an individual or association or other body of individuals which or who employs building workers in any building or other construction work; and includes an establishment belonging to a contractor, but does not include an individual who employs such workers in any building or construction work in relation to his own residence the total cost of such construction not being more than rupees ten lakhs;
So the crucial question is the worth of building or construction work carried out and it does not matter whether it is an individual or a body of individuals who get the construction done. Seen thus there is liability to comply with BOCW Act.
