Dear Seniors,

This is Vinayak working as a HR in textile unit. I need one help from you, kindly see the question as described below which is related to PF applicability to Sizing & Warping units (Textile Manufacturing)

As per the employee’s provident funds & miscellaneous provisions Act, 1952.......

The act is applicable –

a) To every factory engaged in any industry specified in Schedule - I to the act and employing 20 or more persons;

b) To every other establishment employing 20 or more persons specified by the central govt. in this behalf.

But schedule- I describes Textile (made wholly or in part of cotton or wool or jute or silk, whether natural or artificial.)

And expression “textile “includes the products of carding, spinning, weaving ,finishing and dyeing yarn and dyeing yarn and fabrics ,printing, knitting and embroidering.

My actual question is in the schedule –I: the act describes the expression of “textile” as above but it does not include Sizing & Warping.

Then question arises is PF act is applicable to Sizing & Warping? Which almost a part of textile manufacturing. I have confusion on this topic kindly clear my doubt.

Awaiting your reply.

Dear Vinayak ji,
Sizing & Warping are the process in the textile manufacturing, if I am not wrong. Even carding, spinning, weaving, finishing and dyeing yarn and dyeing yarn and fabrics, printing, knitting and embroidering etc. are the process in textile.
PF Act is applicable to Textile whether it wholly or in part of cotton or wool or jute or silk, whether it is natural or artificial. It includes the activity of Sizing & Warping. Sizing & Warping are the departments in Textile. You can not exclude those departments from applicability of PF Act. I feel, there should not be any doubt.
The serial (d) in the schedule at the end I read it very carefully. My impression to it, any product of carding, spinning, weaving, finishing and dyeing yarn and dyeing yarn and fabrics, printing, knitting and embroidering etc. is also textile. In this "product of" and "etc" are very important terms.
