We are constructing a new industrial building and awarding a contract to a civil contractor. We got ourselves registered under BOCW Act.

My query is do we required to got ourselves registered under the Contract labor Act also as the civil contractor is asking Form V from us to obtain Labor License and to my knowledge Form V can be issued by PE if registered under the Contract Labor Act

Please guide

Yes,you are right. No separate registration under CLRA is required if you have complied with the provisions of BOCW Act. Moreover, the CLRA is applied when you engage workers to do work connected with the routine work that you are doing.

You should refer to the definition of contract labour int he act.

It basically applies where a person is doing work in your 'Establishment' because of an agreement between you and his direct employer, to deliver a result other than pure sale of goods.

SO does the definition apply to you?
If you are getting a new building built inside your existing factory or campus, it probably will
If you are doing it at a place where no work has started and you have nothing to do with the site (except you own or leased it), then probably not.

If you give full details, perhaps someone can give a more accurate answer
