Under sub-clause (i) and (ii) of clause (m) of section 2 of the Factories Act, 1948 

“factory” has been defined as any premises, including the precincts thereof 
(i) whereon ten or more workers are working or were working on any day of the preceding twelve months, and in any part of which a manufacturing process is being carried on with the aid of power, or is ordinarily so carried on, or 
(ii) whereon twenty or more workers are working, or were working on any day of the preceding twelve months, and in any part of which a manufacturing process is being carried on without the aid of power, or is ordinarily so carried on. 
Because of the existing limit, small units are also covered under the definition of “factory”. Due to increase in manufacturing activities by small units in the State, the existing threshold limit of “ten” and “twenty” is amended by “twenty” and “forty” respectively, so that establishing of small manufacturing units be promoted resulting in the creation of more employment opportunities for workers. Consequently, existing section 85 of the Act is amended.
