THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Factories that fail to complete the registration procedures on time will face the music, Labour Minister Shibu Baby John has said. He was speaking after inaugurating the online services of the Factories and Boilers Department here on Tuesday.

“The government has readied a flawless registration system now. But only 50 companies have availed themselves of the facility. Rules say that unregistered factories cannot be allowed to function. The government will impose hefty fine on them as stipulated in the Factories Act,” he said.

The minister said that the second phase of the online system would see web-based system for factory inspection.

The online services would herald a big change in the functioning and monitoring of factories, he said.

The Integrated Department Monitoring System, launched by the minister, envisages the provision of all facilities of the Factories and Boilers Department through online system.

K Muraleedharan MLA presided over the function. Factories and Boilers Department director P Pramod, BPCL executive director Prasad Panicker, Thomas Kadavan, Navas Beeran and K P Ramachandran Nair spoke at the function.
