I work for an equipment leasing company wherein the there is huge scarcity of labour.
Moreover, the wages are paid in cash to..
1. Migratory Workers
2. Most of them don't have Bank Accounts or any photo ID for opening bank accounts
3. They work under Labour Contractor.
PF authorities are issuing notice to enrol these casual workers under EPF or else servicing us notices. According to them, even if a worker worked for a day, PF needs to be deducted.
While making it compulsion, workers are threatening to leave the work.  After convincing, we could get the ids of couple of workers who were having Aadhar and Address Proof. 
Recently, I heard that if a person has worked for more than 60 days, then only they should be made member of PF. Is this true?

I look forward to your advice.

 He is required to be enrolled immediately upon his joining and contribution is required to be deducted and paid including share of employer. Therefore, in my opinion, there is no alternative except to make compliance in respect of casual, temporary or any type of employees even those who are engaged for only one day.
