my establishment is covered under the factories act from past 20 yrs. One of the labour inspector in our city visited our premises and asked me to register under the shop and commercial establishment Act. and he is forcing us to do us. but as per i know there is no need to register under shop act as we r registered under factories Act. plz help me to fight back this issue. let me know any notification or case law regarding this.
thank you.

If in your establishment any "manufacturing process" is taking place as defined under Factory Act and the establishment employees 10 or more persons with the aid of power or 20 or more persons w/o the aid of power than you have to register your company under factory act or otherwise go throught your state's S&E act for registration under S&E act. Whichever defination is close to the nature of your business will be applicable.

Hi Praveen Kumar
First give me the clarification if your corporate office is situated in manufacturing process taken place then it is not necessary to go for registration of S&E. if corporate office and manufacturing unit both are located in different places then you need to go for S&E registration compulsory as per the S&E rules.

Hi Praveen Kumar, I Agree with Sivakumar as if your Corporate Office is Separate from Manufacturing Unit then you need to Register under S&E Act & Rules.

Dear friends,
I appreciate Mr. Sivakumar's comment reg.location of the corp. off. To be specific, it depends upon the area of factory shown on the factory plan approved by the directorate of factories and the no.of employees working in the offices or establishments beyond the factory map approved. Such offices beyond factory does not necessarily mean only corporate office; employers even keep the site admin off. or other offices not directly associated with the factory operations and maintenance jobs, outside the factory premises. Employees posted in such outside offices shall be covered under the S&E Act.

Mr.Sivakumar and Abuhrd have clarified the circumstances under which you need to register under Shops Act. Apart from this, if you have any shop in the premises of teh factory which is not connected with manufacturing process, then also you may have to register under Shops Act in some States. You have not specified as to what grounds on which the Labour Inspector insisted on registration under Shops Act which would ahve made things clear to the memebers to enable them to reply more specifically.
