Kindly share you view or guide on which Act would the Hospital/ Healthcare industry be covered under? (1) Shops and Establishment Act or (2) Factory act Harshit
From India
In my opinion, the Hospital/ Healthcare industry will be under Shops and Establishment Act.

Many members of Citehr are suggesting that healthcare / hospital industry comes under factory act also. I would appreciate some clarification on the same.
From India
I also work for the Hospital/ Healthcare industry only. You need not to get registered under Factories Act as it is supposed to be done by the units which comes under manufacturing of the product.
Factories Act of 1948 clearly says that in any premises when 10 employees along with power (electric), or 20 employees without power (electric) engaged in manufacturing process they have to get registered under factories act.

Dear Sir, Thank you for your valuable response. Regards. Harshit

Dear Sir,
Hospitals and Nursing home in Karnataka are exempted from shop and establishment Act and as such the provisions of Factories Act are not applicable. There has been separate enactment for hospitals and Nursing Homes but till date no Rules have been made and hence the provisions of the Act are not applicable.

Dear Atulji,
As per your view share till date the provisions of the act is not applicable so it's implied that currently shops and establishment act is applicable as shared by manoj ji...

Dear Mr.Harshit
As per section 3 of the Karnataka Shops and Commercial Establishment Act nothing in this Act shall apply to any establishment for treatment or care of the sick,infirm or the mentally unfit and hence, in Karnataka the provisions of the Act are not applicable.
