You need to share more details if you need a proper answer. What you have posted is a little vague.

I try to make it simple -
One group have one factory at Maharashtra.
Company A & B belongs to the same group, Co A have 25 % of the manpower & Co B have rest of 75% manpower running this factory.
Company A is registered under the Factories Act,
There is common statutory compliance being followed for Co A & B.

Question - Since A & B belongs to one parent group, for compliance purpose, can all employees (from A & B ) will be treated as one company under Factory Act? or separate compliance / documentation is required for A & B? How to go about it?

Hope, my doubt is clear now.

Like I said, you need to give all the details if you want the correct advice
Claiming to make it simple and in the process hiding some information does not work.

Anyway, the compliances can only be done for the employees of the company where they are employed. So company A can not do compliances including employees from Company B, unless Company B is a contractor under Contract Labour Regulations.

But the answer again, depends on a number of circumstances, which you are reluctant to disclose on the forum. Then I would suggest you take the help of a labour consultant or a lawyer who is an expert on the matter.

For all purposes under labour laws, the employees will be clubbed together even if the entities have different registrations provided the management is same and when there exists financial integrality, ie, transfer of fund from one establishment to another.

Usually in this type of situation, there may be two options.

OPTION - 1 - Both the A and B are located in one place. One of them started earlier and subsequently the second one developed as a part of extension of existing factory. Then the extended site plan should be approved by the factory directorate. Other formalities - Trade License, Pollution etc. to be taken care and compliance under labour laws will be common.

OPTION -2 Both A & B may be in same location or at different locations under the same management. There is possible to get different Factory license, Trade License etc. and compliance under labor laws will also be different. Usually if the factories are at different locations, it will be better to have two set of compliance.

JSW Bengal Steel started the factory at Salboni, WB. But it has not been finally finished. It has all approval and compliance under JSW Bengal Steel. Subsequently, the same management started JSW Cement Plant at the same premises with absolutely different entity - Factory license, PF, ESI etc. compliance differently - there is no issue.

USD HR Solutions has one client who are in the business of Pathology, imaging etc. under one roof and one management with 4 different organizations - registration under S & E Act differently, different labour laws compliance - even under two entities number of employees is less than 10 and no ESIC compliance. All organization has PF registration ( voluntarily and normal ) .

It depends on management strategy how to run the organizations with proper compliance.
