Unlike an employee, an independent contractor does not work regularly for an employer but works as and when required, during which time he or she may be subject to law of agency. Independent contractors are usually paid on a freelance basis. Contractors often work through a limited company or franchise, which they themselves own, or may work through an umbrella company.

      Dear sir,

      Thank you for your valuable information. My doubt is whether this licence is required to obtain work orders of govt contracts or is it neccessary for private industries too. Do private (small )industries also ask for this license. By obtaining supervisor licence can I provide electeical service in industries inshort can I take contracts of industries such as panel installation and making,solar panel installation etc.Do I require labour licence to take up such contracts.

      Thanks in advance.
