Labour license


We are working as a civil contractor, we have taken the Labour License for 500 labour's. We have engaged the sub contractor's. The some of sub contractor's has employed more then 20 labours at site.

My question is, for our sub contractor, wheather it is necessary to take labour license for employing more then 20 labours.

Contract Labour Licence is required only if 20 or more then 20 persons are working in any calender month. Form 5 by principal employer, application filled on form 4 along with muster roll copy which shows 20 or >20 are working there. if employees are <20 no need to obtain licence.After that The Contract Labour (R&A) Act 1970, form XXIV Half Yearly Return to be submitted to Asst Commissioner of Labour before 31 jan and before 31 of july twice in the year. Sub-contractor also must take.

dear sir I would also like to add that certain obligations are cast upon the principal employer also, with regards to timely and accurate payment of wages, endorsing the wage register, following obligations laid down by, other labour statutes such as minimum wages act, payment of wages act, payment of bonus act, payment of gratuity act, industrial disputes act et.c
