Yes mock drills on fire are to be conducted once in two months.
You must also contact fire department and have a drill by them once in 6 months.
Have a alternate month drill planne and coincide every six month fire dept drill with your fire drill date to make life easy.
fire fighting drill
evacuation drill
first aid training
Health checkups
They are the 4 features of factory act you must comply.
Here is a tip"
1. Organization has to invest a lot for the above if conducted by external agencies - so - recruit someone with this set of qualification and be happy.
2. A great deal of time/money is spent on safety trainings compliment them. Investing time money into mock drills is a useful investment. This also will ehnance safety culture and employee morale.
Guess I have been of some help.
Yes, all above answers are satisfactory but I have to add one point regarding mock drill, as per factory act 1948, and state rules Mock drills frequency is once in a six month and Fire drills frequency is once in a two month.

I would suggest you contact factory inspector of your jurisdiction and have his view.
I would like to add here that even if Factory Act specifies for once in 6 months and other applicable statutory requirements specify once in 2 months (eg Punjab or Haryana Factory Rules etc), then the stringent should be followed.
ISO 45001:2018 (Earlier OHSAS 18001) says "periodically testing and exercising the planned response capability" as per clause 8.3 (c). Now this also does not specify period.
In nutshell - in this case - plan for once in 2 months. (but also discuss with factory inspector of your jurisdiction.
