Dear Professionals, Can anyone share with me the List of the Industries covered under Factories Act 1948.
From India, Delhi
Any activity that can be called as "manufacturing activity" and if it employs 10 or people and uses "power" (or 20 or more people without use of power) will be conforming to the definition of a "factory" under the Factories Act.
It will help if you kindly refer to Sec. 2 (Definitions) of the Factories Act.
Any specific query, kindly post!

To add what Mr. Samvedan has written, as per section 85 of the Factories Act, the state government has the power to declare any factory wherein less than 10 workers are employed to be a factory. As such an establishment manufacturing paint having only 3 employees is a factory requiring licence and other formalities provided in the Factories Act. Therefore, the applicability can be tested only with reference to section 85 also.

Dear D.K.Sinha-H.R,
Rather than asking the list of Industries covered under Factories Act, If you ask which are the activities not covered under the Factories Act, probably you will get some list of non covered activities under Factories Act.

Mr. Korgaonkar, Thank your such a nice suggestion. It would be really a great sharing if you could let me know the activates which is not covered under Factories Act 1948.
