Reverify the aforsaid Provision
22nd March 2019 From India, Delhi
A crirical analysis of the CLRA Act, 1970 would reveal that in a situation wherein a Principal Employer engages both licensed contractors and unlicensed contractors ( because of the no. of contract labor falling below the statutory minimum for license ) simultaneously in his establishment, the PE as well as all the contractors are bound by the provisions of sec. 21 of the Act in respect of payment of wages to the contract labor. In order to comply with the provsions of s 21(2) and (3) of the Act, generally, the PE can insist such a thing when the disbursement of wages of the CL is through any mode like ECS other than manual one.
The reason cited for your refusal is not valid.

Please guide us if the contract is awarded for some miscellaneous work to any independent contractor other than the manufacturing activities ,like building maintenance , electrical wiring, which is not a regular work and the work is also completed by them within stipulated time , under this situation whether principal employer is liable for over time, and other statutory payment under the concern act or not ?

In case of time-specific incidental works like the ones you mentioned, I am of the opinion that the PE cannot be held responsible for O.T wages and the like if the works extend beyond the time schedule agreed to in the contract because of the belated execution by the contractor.
