Dear Colleague,

Well supported by the Colleague in giving the link which kindly explore.

In addition to that kindly go through Section 6 of the Factories Act which mandates the Plan Approval if your Factory carries our any " Manufacturing Process" and other conditions.

Most of the State Governments give the approval for Plans under the Factories Act 1948 through the Director of Industrial Safety and Health or Chief Inspector of Factories as the case may be. The departments concerned have on line portal to apply for plan approval in many states with a time line tag. There are SINGLE WINDOW SYSTEM also available and really it works well. What is needed is to prepare the Drawings in line with the Guidelines given by the Department, use the relevant application form prescribed and furnish the information that are required. Then apply. I personally suggest that you meet the Director of Industrial Safety and Health or Inspectorate of Factory Official and have a clarity before application is sent. They guide well and in one go the approval will be obtained. Same process to be followed whenever modifications, alterations and new machines installed etc to be followed.

Section 6 in The Factories Act, 1948
6. Approval, licensing and registration of factories.—
(1) The State Government may make rules— 1[(a) requiring, for the purposes of this Act, the submission of plans of any class or description of factories to the Chief Inspector or the State Government;] 2[(aa) requiring the previous permission in writing of the State Government or the Chief Inspector to be obtained for the site on which the factory is to be situated and for the construction or extension of any factory or class or description of factories;
(b) requiring for the purpose of considering applications for such permission the submission of plans and specifications;
(c) prescribing the nature of such plans and specifications and by whom they shall be certified;
(d) requiring the registration and licensing of factories or any class or description of factories, and prescribing the fees payable for such registration and licensing and for the renewal of licences;
(e) requiring that no licence shall be granted or renewed unless the notice specified in section 7 has been given.
(2) If on an application for permission referred to in 3[clause (aa)] of sub-section (1) accompanied by the plans and specifications required by the rules made under clause (b) of that sub-section, sent to the State Government or Chief Inspector by registered post, no order is communicated to the applicant within three months from the date on which it is so sent, the permission applied for in the said application shall be deemed to have been granted.
(3) Where a State Government or a Chief Inspector refuses to grant permission to the site, construction or extension of a factory or to the registration and licensing of a factory, the applicant may within thirty days of the date of such refusal appeal to the Central Government if the decision appealed from was of the State Government and to the State Government in any other case. Explanation.—A factory shall not be deemed to be extended within the meaning of this section by reason only of the replacement of any plant or machinery or within such limits as may be prescribed, of the addition of any plant or machinery 4[if such replacement or addition does not reduce the minimum clear space required for safe working around the plant or machinery or adversely affect the environmental conditions from the evolution or emission of steam, heat or dust or fumes injurious to health].
