In this case, the factory does not have anything different apart from factory licenses.
They are using the common place to record attendance / process wages / entry / exit / common boiler / common diesel generator etc.
Moreover, the process in all the three factories are the same / inter related.
Pls quote if there are any law citations to prove that this is a single factory.
1) Entrances/exits are considered, for separate entity they should be kept separate for separate units..
2) MD/Directors of the companies will be checked, at the time of inspection to prove relationship inbetween..
3) Having Separate licenses has made you strong on this..
4) Go to Vakilno1.com for further Legal Help or queries..
SO NO TWO FACTORY WILL BE OUTLINED WITH IN ONE BUILDING LAYOUT.
ONE LOCATION OWNED BY ONE CAN BE DEMARKED IN TWO DISTINCT LAYOUTS (WITH OUT OVERIDING PRIMARY FUNCTION INTO EACH OTHER, except probably the external / outer gates.
ONE FACTORY CAN HAVE MULTUIPLE ATTENDANCE REGISTERS/ENTRY BUT TWO DISTINCT FACTORY AT SAME LOCATION (WITH INDIVIDUAL DEMARKED SPACE) CANNOT HAVE SAME REGISTERs/RECORDS/COUTNS.
Hope this helps...seniors may shed expert/clearer advice.
