I am a registered contractor of a Govt. local body (like MCD, NDMC) of New Delhi.
The Department deducts 1% cess from our payments on account of BOCW cess and deposits it itself to the Labour Department.
Our agreement states, mainly Clause 19, heading "Labour Laws to be complied by the contractor" that we have to comply with "the provisions of the building and other construction worker (Regulation of employment and condition of service) Act, 1996 and the building and other construction Workers Welfare Cess Act, 1996." The clause may also be read from GCC 2010 issued by CPWD.
The agreement is silent on the act(s) and/or it's provisions other than what is stated above.
What I need to do know is whether it is complusory for us to get ourselves registered under both the acts?
