Contact Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Act, 1970
30. Effect of laws and agreements inconsistent with this Act
(1) The provisions of this Act shall have effect notwithstanding anything inconsistent therewith contained in any other law or in the terms of any agreement or contract of service, or in any standing orders applicable to the establishment whether made before or after the commencement of the Act:
PROVIDED that where under any such agreement, contract of service or standing orders the contract labor employed, in the establishment are entitled to benefits in respect of any matter which are more favorable to them than those to which they would be entitled under this Act, the contract labor shall continue to be entitled to the more favorable benefits in respect of that matter, notwithstanding that they received benefits in respect of other matters under this Act.
(2) Nothing contained in this Act shall be construed as precluding any such contract labor from entering into an agreement with the principal employer or the contractor, as the case may be, for granting them rights or privileges in respect of any matter which are more favorable to them than those to which they would be entitled under this Act.
