Day one any person engaged of work, he has to be covered with ESI, for EPF if his job is for day or two EPF is not required

Per day 100/- as per factories act of Pondicherry for 8 hours


1. They are covered by Contract Labour Act.

2. The EPF has to be deducted on wages, including minimum wages. The EPF Department has recently clarified what wages are covered. Please check this forum for the recent judgement or the EPF website where the clarification is published.
