Dear Sudhir Sir,
As per mfr 1963 section 71B
(2) In every factory adequate provision of water-supply for fire fighting shall be made and where the
amount of water required in litres per minute is 550 litres or more as calculated from the formula
mentioned below, power-driven trailer pumps of adequate capacity shall be provided and
maintained:-
Water required in litres per minute =A + B + C + D/20

where A,B,C,D is the floor area calculated in sq. mtrs.
Does this means that if the water required in lit/min after calculating by the given formula comes to less than 550 lit/min we dont need the hydrant system to be installed??
please guide

Dear Ajay,
The Factories Act is 1948 and MFR are 1963.
The Fire Act is 2008
The Fire Act over rules the MFR
I had asked the same question to Fire Department which they have clarified as above.
