Dear Seniors,
Our plant is situated in Uttarakhand & that is under construction and not in production mode due to some reason. We have already got factory license from the appropriate authority few months back. My query is, though no production/ Manufacturing activities is carrying on then in that case the factory act shall applicable upon us or not?

Dear If in your company 10 or more then it employees are working then the factory act must be applicable.

Factory means (i) any premises including precincts thereof wherein 10 or more workers are employed on any day of the preceding 12 months and a manufacturing process is carried on with the aid of power; or (ii) wherein 20 or more workers are employed on any day of the preceding 12 months and a manufacturing process is carried on with the aid of power.

Dear Sir,
"Factory" is clearly defined in section 2(m) on the "Factories Act 1948" but the applicability of the Act is still confused. Around 80 employees are working but no manufacturing process is going on.

manufacturing does not only mean that some machines are moving in the premises if it is so the people sitting at the head office they are not doing any manufacturing work even then they are covered under the act dear if your company is registered under the companies act and 80 employees are working there so you are surly comes under the factory act you must follow.

Dear Satish Ji,
For Head Office /Corporate office/ Branch Offices where commercial activities are carried on a Shop & Establishment Act is applicable. Even one employee or N no's of employees employing there.
Pls correct me if I am wrong.
