Dear Aseem,
Industrial Disputes Act, 1947 is a Central Act for the purpose of investigation into and settlement of industrial disputes between the workmen and the employers or between the workmen and workmen or between the employers and employers in connection with the employment or non employment or the conditions of labour of any person.
It would, therefore, be applicable to every establishment or activities analogous to industry.
Information technology or software services is an activity carried on through the employment of such persons with the required technical qualifications. Hence such establishments would certainly come under the purview of the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947.

Although the companies/establishment engaged in software services, as has been held by some of the High Courts as well as the Supreme Court, are not "factories" covered under the Factories Act 1948, yet, such establishments are coverable under the Shops and Commercial Establishment of the State and may fall under the category of "industry" within the meaning of the Industrial Disputes Act 1947 and the provisions of the Act 1947 would apply. However, you can refer specif query to me. My mobile No. is 8077779793 - S.K. Mittal, Labour Law Expert.
