When the competent authority was approached to award permenent status to one of the workmen who continuously worked for more than 10 years.The authority states that the number 20 is necessary during the preceding 12 montha of application.So far the other labour Acts ie Payment of bonus Act, Provident fund acts, Payment of gratuity Acts, the institution shall be covered under the act evfen if the number of workers fall below the minimum in the subsequent years.Whether the contention of the authority under the CPS Act is tenable?
