Do not see whether you are legally bound to do so but look at employee comfort point of view and provide these conveniences.
Expenditure will be worth it.

saiconsultIf you are a factory employing more than 250 workers, you are required under the Factories Act to run canteen with adequate equipment like utensils and crockery etc. You may refer to your State rules in this regard. If you are a commercial establishment intending to provide a canteen, I go with Mr.Nathrao saying that there is no use providing four walls for dining without minimum facilities like spoons and utensils etc.It sounds an incomplete facility.

Dinesh DivekarDear Praveen,
What is the percentage of employee who bring home food? It must be a small one. Why bother about providing the facility of plate and spoon to the employees who bring home food? If this facility is not given then what is the option? Should employees bring their own plate and spoon along with tiffin carrier?
Why we need to do everything provided it is compulsory? Providing plate and spoon in staff canteen is a too facility to be considered as a welfare measure!
