Dear Mr.Kumar,

The principle of equal pay for equal work applies to contract labor when they are engaged on works or operations along with regular workmen of the Principal Employer.

The principle of equal pay for equal work irrespective of gender applies when both sexes are employed as contract labor in the work of the establishment.

Yes equal pay for equal applies to contract labour employed by the principal employer

To add to the opinions on the record, reference is invited to the provision in the Contract Labour Central Rules.
Rule 25 (2) (v) (a) in cases where the workman employed by the contractor perform the same or similar kind of work as the workmen directly employed by the principal employer of the establishment, the wage rates, holidays, hours of work and other conditions of service of the
workmen of the contractor shall be the same as applicable to the workmen directly employed by the principal employer of the establishment on the same or similar kind of work:
Similar provision would be there in the State Rules too. So the liability is not only for payment of same wages but with respect to all other service conditions too.
