Dear Nathrao, Thanks for the guidance. I shall seek the help of a consultant as I am very sure, it would have been registered. Thanks to all.. Thanks, Robin Singh
Dear Robin Singh,
The reply of the Labour Department you mentioned is the reflection of the ubiquitous lethargy and red-tapism prevalent in Govt. offices. Since registration is an one-time affair, certainly every registering authority will have a register of establishments to be kept permanent. Anyway, engage a consultant as Mr.Nathrao suggested for he will have the knack of the things getting done in time because of his influential acquaintance.

It is unfortunate that even for registration of your shop or establishment one has to engage a consultant.Talk of registration through internet and one click one window is not translated into reality.
I had to engage a consultant for getting an NOC though most requirements were complied with.
Lethargy and greed dominate thinking.
How will business get going if the very department which is to facilitate is itself not really helpful??
This fundamental problem has to be resolved for India to go ahead.
Or things will remain on paper and we remain stuck in a complex environment of rules and regulations.
Making government departments work optimally is the biggest challenge and that is not being addressed by any Government meaningfully.

Yes, Mr.Rao, this is the order of the day. Unfortunately we inherit the restrictive rules and modalities thrust upon us by a suspicious foreign ruler and continue them even after his departure. Rules are there only to guide the administrative machinery and the public to accomplish the purpose for which rules were made. But unfortunately the administrative machinery is bent upon to apply the rules only to negate the purpose for obvious reasons.
Thanks for the reply sir...Yes it was a mistake..I had in my subsequent posts had corrected it as Shops and Establishments Act. I can very well reveal my company's name but have not diclosed it for obvious reasons. We are a PSU and we are into trading of various commodities. Already we have checked with the local labour department office and they replied that the registration is not necessary/applicable for us as we fall under the Central Government. But i have my own doubt that though ours is a central PSu, we are a commercial undertaking. Hence registration is necessary. Any way, as our dear members have guided me, I am checking with a consultant to find out the registration number of our certificate as I am very certain that it would have been registered..but no where to be found in our records. I am indebted to the guidance you all have given me.

You seem to be in the state of Tamil Nadu. To the best of my knowledge, the Tamil Nadu shop and establishment act does not provide for registration or licensing of shops and commercial establishments. That is probably why you do not have a registration number. Please get a cope of the act and check what is the actual requirements and how it dovetails with your organisation

Dear Saswatabanerjee,
We are based in Telangana. Today i heard from my retired seniors that they had registered long time back. The sad thing is that nobody has bothered to renew or look into it and preserve a copy. It has disappeared. The labour department here said that it is not necessary. I am confused. But after detailed discussions here, we have decided to go in for a consultant for finding the registration number and renewal. Moreover the local GHMC people say that we have to get a trade license separate and renew it every year at the rate of Rs.6 per sq.ft for our office.
