Unlawfully cancellation of tender

in outsourcing of manpower tender, the contractor was compelled by principal employer to depute the previously working labour. when it was not done by contractor the tender was cancelled by principal employer.

but that was not mentioned in the tender agreement.

is it lawful or against the law.

Generally this is what happens in every Government organization and big private companies. The PE have readymade manpower with them and as the contractor not able to fulfill the obligations as per their whims, they engage another contractor while maintaining the earlier manpower. They simply transfer the manpower form one to another contractor. 

I don't think the contract or the letter of intent expressly have such clause as what you have held. It may have clause to depute personnel only on such and such post or locations. In case the contract is silent on this, the practice shall prevail else if there is any express clause, you can contest.

For further opinion, need to go through the documents.
