We are a factory under factory act and we are planning to extend the factory by setting up a new building within the premises.
we have engages a contract for construction of building but he doesnt have ESI coverage but he has WC and a group insurance for his employees.
Now, is it ok if dont consider them under ESI?
or do we need to comply ESI contribution by deducting from his bill pay on his behalf?
Since the factory is already in operation, and the work being done is only an extension of the original construction, it will come under the purview of ESI. You have to deduct ESI from the bill and contribute it as contract workers' contribution.
