From the CLRA Act 1970 perspective, it applies to every establishment and license has to be taken by every contractor. So, the Contractor has to approach the Licensing Officer for license for every place he/she works. Have not come across any instance where the License mentions more than one establishment. In case the nature of work is different in the establishments, then also, the license is issued for a contractor to do a specific work. Also, the registration of the PE has to be done for each establishment and there is no provision for clubbing the establishments. So to avoid later complications it is better that the contractor has separate license.

The Principal Employer has to take Registration from the State Labour Commissioner if he wants to engage contract labours in the different districts of the same state. At the same time, if the PE has work only in one district, the RC can be obtained from that district labour officer only. Within the same district there is no need of separate RCs.

If the Contractor has taken contracts for engaging people at different districts, then he can take a single licence from the State Labour Commissioner. For that the Principal Employer will be issuing form VI accordingly and the contractor can apply for licence with a list of employees in the different locations attached.

If the Principal Employer has offices in different states and in these different states he has engaged contract labour, then the appropriate authority to give registration is the Central Labour Commissioner. In the case of establishments having branches in multiple states, the Central Labour is the appropriate authority for all purposes, ie, Industrial Disputes, Gratuity, Contract labour etc.

If you have engaged separate contractors for separate districts, then, of course, the licence required for the contractor can be taken from the District Labour Officer representing the district where he intends to deploy his labour.
