I wanted to know under which act does the hospital industry fall under? Does it fall under the Factories Act or the Shop & Commercial Act?
The hospital is already registered under the Societies Act of 1860.

It Comes under the Shop & Commercial Act and into Hospitality only PF is applicable.ESI is not applicable.

Dear Rekha,
Why you require the above mention information?
Generally hospitals are registered under shops and commercial establishment and some case it may come under factories act for that we need to check the definition.
If you have blood bank, radiation equipment, canteen, biomedical waste, general waste and other as applicable by the state then you have to register.
From 2010 hospitals are covered under ESI. For any update revert to us.

Dear Rekha,
As already told by members that in general, hospitals are covered under Shops & Establishment Act but even then to finalize the query you must go through your State Shops & Establishment Act & the definition of manufacturing process under the Factories Act, 1948 & applicability clause under both these Acts.
