Telangana Factory Registration
Telangana Factory Registration
Telangana Factory Registration is mandated by the Factories Act, 1948 to ensure that the factory complies with the stipulated rules and safety guidelines. Upon registering the factory, the Government of Telangana issues a factory license. This license is a document of authorisation for granting permission to regulate and carry out manufacturing pursuits from a particular locality. In this article, we look at the procedure for obtaining Telangana Factory Registration in detail.
Factories Act, 1948
According to the Factories Act, any person who wants to construct, extend or take into use any building a factory in Telangana has to get prior permission from the respective authority in advance before the commencement of the manufacturing business.
The Factories Act is established with the objective of ensuring the installation of adequate safety measures and promoting the health and welfare of the workers employed in the factories. Also, it strives to curtail the hazardous growth of factories. To complete the Telangana Factory Registration and to obtain a factory license you need to follow three steps:
- Obtain Consent for Establishment – Approval of Plan and Permission to Construct/ Extend/ or Take into Use Any Building as a Factory
