Dear all,
We have 600 employees in Roll (Permanent) and 60 employee in Off Role (Contractors)
The Contractors are service contractors working for Tonnage and Piece Rate basis, also all the contractors are employed below 10 employees, here our doubt is whether we need to cover the Tonnage and Piece Rate employees under EPF act.
Requesting to clarify my doubts, with Section or Rule
Thanks in advance...

It is mandatory for the principal employer to enroll the workers of contractors, if he (the contractor) does not have its own PF code, to enroll on the principal establishment's code number.

Thank you sir, i need some more clarification on this
1) Do we need to cover employees who are working on tonnage/ piece rate basis
2) if tonnage employees are getting more than 15000 o basic salary and they are first employed and not having precious membership
Thanks in advance.

Dear Ms Pooja,
I refer to your querry.
Precisely speaking, the definition of an employee is inclusive, and is widely worded to include any person engaged in connection with the work of an establihsment, and is paid wages either directly or indirectly, in connection with work of an establishment and is paid wages".
Above definition is as per Section 2(F) of the EPF Act.
(Please note the words "any person engaged IN CONNECTION WITH the work of an
establishment, as is paid wages EITHER DIRECTLY or INDIRECTLY")
