It is not only the clause of "workman", there are many other points which have to be kept in mind while drafting standing orders, like transfer, abandonment, termination etc. All these clauses should be drafted in consonance with applicable Labour Laws. It will be better for your organization, if you get the standing orders drafted by an expert.
However, the workman will be those employees who fall under the definition of "workman" u/s 2(s) of Industrial Disputes Act 1947, irrespective of their designation.

Hi Manisha,
Before you complete the drafting of your SO I would suggest you refer the latest Labour Codes already published (check gazette notifications already shared in citeHR pages in some other relevant links) by the Govt.of India. As you know with the impending implementation expected around Dec.20 you may have to amend your clauses in consonance with these Labour codes also. You may as well take these codes wherever applicable also into consideration so that you can complete the drafting in one go.
