Under the provisions of Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Act, making payment to workman is of Contractor under the supervision of Principal Employer but in case, contractor does not pay he same the employer is liable to pay. However, he has a right to indemnify the same from the amount payable by him to the Contractor. But the Principal employer can not escape from his liability to ensure the payment of workmen so employed through Contractor.
