If the narrative is rightly understood, a single principal employer has entered into two separate contracts of different time schedules and stages of work with the same contractor to be carried out in the same construction project i.e., construction of a hotel complex.
Therefore, with reference to the time schedule, both are two distinctly different contracts though at some point of time or other both are simultaneously done by the same contractor.
Though the first contract work relating to electrical work of the basement was mentioned to have commenced on 20th January 2018, no mention about its completion but presumably it continues. Since the maximum no of contract labor in that work is only 17, no necessity for obtaining licence under the CLRA Act,1970.
Regarding the second work having already commenced on 1st September,2018 with 27 contract workmen,
licence should have been obtained by the contractor and notice of commencement of work should have been submitted by the PE and the contractor to the licensing officer. Since this work is still in progress, application for licence should be immediately submitted by the contractor at least now.
