Dear Agrawal ji,
Thanks for sharing the information promptly. This circular covers permission to keep hard copy of electronic records of labours, under Factory Act, Shops and Estb. Act, Minimum Wages Act, Payment of Wages Act, Equal Remuneration Act, Bonus Act and Maternity Benefit Act. Mah Min HRA Act is left out from this circular.
It is really a good move of the Government.

Good information. Thanks for posting.
Govt. of Karnataka has given few years back permission for this. In addition to combined registers and combined Annual return avoiding duplication and going in modern stream.

Dear Friends,
Also CLRA Act, BOCW Act are left out from this circular. This circular, I repeat, covers permission to keep hard copy of electronic records of labours, under Factory Act, Shops and Estb. Act, Minimum Wages Act, Payment of Wages Act, Equal Remuneration Act, Bonus Act and Maternity Benefit Act.

Dear all,
Maharashtra government has done nothing new, the permissions are already extended by section 4 of the Information Technology Act, 2000. The section reads as under:
4. Legal recognition of electronic records.
Where any law provides that information or any other matter shall be in writing or
in the typewritten or printed form, then, notwithstanding anything contained in such law,
such requirement shall be deemed to have been satisfied if such information or matter
(a) rendered or made available in an electronic form; and
(b)accessible so as to be usable for a subsequent reference.
The circular emanates from the above. The state government perhaps wants to show that it has the powers to allow whereas the Act has already done so.

Dear Shrikant ji,
My Special thanks to you for reproducing the section 4 of Information Technology Act, 2000.
I studied Information Technology Act, 2000 druing my Cyber Law study. I know this section. I read this section several times but I confessed, I also had not applied my mind on this section till I read your post.
About year back, I had participated in discussion on obtaining permission to keep the record electronically, along-with many dignitaries but unfortunately, no one drew attention to the above section in Information Technology Act, 2000.
Today also you may find many prosecutions in ANADI COURT on maintaining record in electronic form with-out permission and this may continue in days to come.....
My question is to all HR Fraternity, who is responsible for it............?
The same question I asked in below given link:

From India, Mumbai
Dear Mr. Korgaonkar,
In this connection Karnataka government has issued to one of my clients that with the advent of the IT Act there is no need to seek permission for maintaining records in electronic form. No govt. official will say that you do not need permission for obvious reasons.

Dear All,
Please advise if this also applies to Bombay Shops and Establishments Act . Also if we can keep the biometric records only and do away with musters.
I am not that good with Marathi intrepretation.

From India, Mumbai
Dear Ms. Jhuma, Did you not understand the meaning of section 4 of The Information Technology Act, 2000? Come on, read part (a) & (b) of the section. Shrikant
