Regional sales office having neither serving or repair work will not be covered under Factories Act. - The Factories Act, 1948

As per section 2 (m) of the Factories Act, 1948, the term factory means any premises wherein ten or more workers are employed by using power in the manufacturing process. There is nothing on record to show that servicing and minor repair works of printing and painting of broken parts are done in the Regional Sales Office. In view of the above, the Regional Sales Office will not be a factory as the petitioner is not doing any manufacturing process by employing 10 or more persons or any day of preceding 12 months.
