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.
