The non-application of the CLRAA,1970 cannot absolve either the principal employer or the contractor of the liability to pay wages to a contract labor for the period he worked in respect of the principal employer's work through the contractor engaged by him.
Better file a claim u/s 15 of the Payment of Wages Act 1936 against both.
