You need to send requisition letter for Soft Copy exemption to Labour Authority. Then You can prepare Statutory Registers in Excel Sheets and take a printouts.

The Information Technology Act, 2000 permits for maintaining records Electronically.No prior Permission from Labour Department is required.The records maintained Electronically should be Preserved with proper disaster management in place (Retrieval of records in case of crash, virus etc)

Dear Mr Vinod Kumar, which Deputy Director visited your Factory? has he given written directions to maintain records manually? We are living in Digital age.Permission from any Authority is not required for maintaining records Electronically.You have got confused.The Authority would have asked for Print of your Data.This should not be construed that, you have to maintain records manually.All Govt departments have installed Bio Metric Attendance System with integration.
If you have any problem, Please revert to me.Ignorance of Law is not an excuse.What are you in your Factory?

Sec 4 of information technology act does not enable anyone to stop maintaining physical records. It only refers to maintaining a scanned / digital, untamperable copy of the original physical record as evidence in a court
So, if you want to maintain digital records, you need approval in writing from the concerned authorities (in this case, chief inspector or commissioner)
You can, however, have a software based record and keep monthly print outs for inspection. That practice is generally accepted by labour authorities, though nothing to that effect has been given in writing anywhere
