The Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Act, 1970 is a Central Act. However mostly all States are having their own rules. Likewise, Delhi is also having its own rules namely Delhi Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Rules, 1970. In the said act there are two types of approvals, one is on the part of contractor, which is called license (section 12) and second is on the part of employer, which is called registration certificate (section 7).   

As Govt. of every State has been focusing on “Easy of Doing Business” and to take it forward the Labour Department Govt. of NCT of Delhi, has decided to easy the procedure for granting of registration & license in the following manner:
