rahulsindhwanBut can they search the premises without search warrant.
and what if they do not find anyone such case?
Do they provide/give anything in written just like other department inspection report to the company?

Establishment can not stop entry of govt officials to any industrial or commercial premises, they have to make compliance of the respective laws as per rules. Mostly their visit is prior informed to their seniors not lower than assistant commissioner level, However the AC/DC/and Commissioner does not need any warrant to enter any business premises.
MSME has some relaxation to ask for document or ID before their entry, but they can not bar the entry, otherwise it would be treated as obstruction to the govt official to perform their duties
But for safeguard for unwanted visitors, the establishment may keep visitors book at entry point with security. where they have to mention full details of them, contact details, and purpose of visit. with their signature.
