You said you work for a Retail Company i.e. you have retail outlets. In this case you do not need a factory license. You will only need a registration under the Shops & Establishment Act.
However, if you have a production facility then you will need a factory license.
My response is based upon the little information you have provided in your query.

Thank you for your valuable answer, But couple of days back Factories inspector visited our premises and said u have to apply for license as we have cold room.This cold room is very small one.We said it is not required for us, he says plz dont argue it is required.

It seems The person posing as Labour Officer is a fraudster, or he is trying to extract some money from your company.
Please ask for his ID and other details.
ALSO TALK TO HIS SUPERIORS, or call the nearest Police Station.
