Model Standing Orders refer to the one given in the Industrial Employment (Standing Orders) Act, 1946 as a model for those who wish to draft one. An employer can take the same, add or remove certain rules, consult with the workers/ representatives and get it certified. Once it is certified, it becomes certified standing orders. A certified standing order can be amended after a period of six months.

Dear Ranjit,
My exposure to such complecated matters only helped me to gain knowledge. I have always been very neutral between employer and employee on issues connected with HR. My past was with a manufacturing company in Kerala and as you know Kerala is very sensitive in Trade Union areas and as I found the workers down here are well aware of their rights. Therefore, before addressing them we should at least go through the Act and I use to trace the corners to find possibilities. That's all. You can also improve your legal knowledge. If you come accross a situation, study it well, refer books and take a note of it and then present it. You will never forget it. Now- a days we have plenty of sources like google,, which are at your fingure only to collect any data to want. In my earlier days it was just printed bare Acts without any comments and interpretations but now the things have different shape. You have potentials to improve. Be with citehr and regualrly view the different forums, don't worry, you do not reply but collect materials. This will help you a lot.

All the best.

Hi Bala

In continuation to the inputs given by Shri Madhu, I wish to add the following:

We can take the model standing orders given in the Industrial Employment (Standing Orders) Act as a guidelines while preparing our own Standing Orders and it need not be the replica of it. For example, if you take the classification of misconducts, we can add any number to it suiting to our requirements. If we have women employees on roll, we can also incorporate the Sexual Harrassment Policy in the Standing Orders. After preparing the draft standing orders, 5 copies have to be submitted to the Appropriate Authority (Normally the Regional Joint commissioner of Labour will be the authority) for certification.

The Appropriate Authority will call both employer representative and employee representatives/unions and he will give a chance to the employee representatives to file their written counter statement. After hearing both the parties the authority will certify the Standing Orders after effecting the required changes, which will become the certified Standing Orders of the company.

In case of any grievance over the Standing Orders, the Act contemplates even a single employee can challenge any of the provisions and request for an amendment.

It is always better to have our own Standing Orders suiting our requirements.

Thanks & Regards

Dear Madhu,

The returns under ESI/EPF are readily available in the website of the respective departments. Please google and find out the webistes and add the links to your favourites sothat you do not have to search then. You can download the forms as well. Alternatively, you can meet the concerned official and collect information. Don't hesitate to meet and talk to them because they are ready for any help. I use to contact officers even over telephone for any clarifications. Do understand that no body is perfect in all respect. If I have any doubt I use to clear it by reading posts made by youngters like you and I never over estimate me or under estimate a fresher in the field. Sometimes you are better informed and equipped of the present changes in HR. In citehr, you can feel like being in a family and, therefore, keep posting and viewing.

Standing Order Act per se was applicable only to factories, mines and plantations.But later on the applicability was widened by state amendments. As such many states have made it applicable to shops and commercial establishments which come under the Payment of Wages Act. Therefore, virtually all establishments with the specified number of employees working therein come under the purview of the Act
