Pf for consultants

A public limited company has appointed a foreign national as consultant for a period of three years under a consultancy agreement. Such foreign national is under an employment visa. Whether such consultant is eligible for PF, ESI, gratuity?

Agreement doesn’t provide for PF or gratuity. It only provides for free accommodation, telephone expenses.

Yes, anysuggestion depends upon whether the terms of services are really that of a consultant.
