1) You apply for factories license when the establishment falls under the definition of "Factories" under Factories Act, 1948.
2) The maximum number of workers that is required should be given, it can be any number like 82, usually applicants round it off.
3) According to the number, various compliances come in like if 500 or more Labour Welfare Officer needs to be appointed, more than 150 you need to have more than one first aid box and so on.
4) Closing/Retrenchment of an establishment is covered under Industrial Disputes Act, 1947 and permission, notice period and pay depends on the number of workers employed.

Can any one advice, we have applied for factory licence but we are not getting it as we couldn't pay any obligation. We came to know from IF they sent the applicaiton back but we didn't receive yet. What will be next step, should we stop our production till we get the licence or will continue till we get the licece.

Neither you have not need to stop the production in your factory till to get the factory license, nor your management will allow you to do it, and can,t not bear it.
if itnis wrong, please suggest.
you may approach the ADF in factory dept.

If you have submitted the licence within the due date along with required fees, it is fine. You don\'t have to pay any thing. The licence may be returned for corrections, which you may carry out on receipt of the application. Otherwise you may approach the dept of factories and get to know on what ground is the application returned? and then take action to correct the application.
For your second question, you don\'t have to stop the production, since you have applied for renewal of licence and it is with them. Keep the production going. Stopping of production arises only on critical cases where the factory is shut down by the dept for not complying with regulations in a serious case.
