You can take guidelines from the following links:P

You can visit the O/o the Inspector of Factories of your jurisdiction, they will have the approved list of Certified/qualified /registered Engineers (Structural Engineer) for this purpose. You can also consult the Director of your District Industry Centre who can guide you. If a Regd. Structural Engineer is not available you can consult a Chartered Engineer from your area who may guide you. If you could not get any one let me know.
Use the gist from the attachment (it's for Karnataka, similar provisions may apply for AP, you can get a copy and proceed accordingly.

Mr. Korgaonkar has given the correct answer to your query.
The factory inspector insist on stability certificate to check that workers are working under safe roof or not.
Contact to above mentioned Competent persons in your city. one of them must be preparing stability cerificates. or you can contact to companies/factories nearest to you and get the address of the competent person who issues such certificate.
Finally if you dont get solution directly contact to factory inspectors office they will be having details of such authorities who issues stability certificate.

To add to the replyfrom Mr. Korgaonkar, the competent person can be a structural engineer associated with the Architect of the building.
Usually these structural engineers are associate members of Institute of Engineers.
Dear Mr. Korgaonkar,
Thanks for the correct reply.
