This is a common question by many organization that in case contractors are engaging people 9 or below - is it necessary to have PF, ESI etc. for them.
Please note that those contractors will work in the premises of PE which is covered under PF, ESI etc. Therefore what Mr. Babu Alexander has been suggested is the best suggestion and better to implement the same.
