By virtue of past orders of the Office of the Commissioner (Labour), Government of NCT of Delhi, contractors deploying contract labour were required to upload details of category of workmen, wages and statutory records on their official website. If the contractor does not have his own website, the same had to be uploaded by the principal employer on his website until uploaded by the contractor. Further, hard copies of all requisite information had to be submitted to the concerned registering/licensing officer.
Presently, the Department Committee through an Office Order dated November 10th, 2023 bearing F. No.: DLC (HQ-II)/CLA/2022/5633-5635 has examined this requirement and recommended for it to not be mandatory in view of the extant “Ease of Doing Business” framework and for reducing compliances that overburden the employers and hamper business processes. However, the processing of registration/applications under the Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Act, 1970 shall be strictly in accordance with the provisions of the said Act and rules made thereunder.
