Some of the key highlights of the New Act are: The provisions of the New Act apply only in relation to the establishments employing 10 ten or more workers.
Employer of an establishment is now required to submit an online application to the Facilitator, for registration of the establishment as well as when there is any change in the particulars of such application, in future under the New Act, along with other documents and applicable fees. Upon receipt of which, the Facilitator would issue a registration certificate, online, along with the Labour Identification Number LIN , to the employer. Such registration certificate would be valid for such period as may be requested by the employer, subject to a maximum period of 10 ten years and thereafter it may be renewed.
Moreover, the Facilitator can cancel the registration of any establishment, if at any time, it is found or brought to the notice of the Facilitator that such registration has been obtained through misrepresentation or suppression of material facts or by submitting false or forged documents or false declaration or by fraud. Also, the New Act permits the employer to maintain records, as may be prescribed, either electronically or manually.

While the Old Act prescribed consistent opening and closing hours for establishments, as set out in the Old Act, the New Act gives power to the Government to fix, by notification in the official gazette, in the public interest, hours for opening and closing of different classes of establishments and for different premises, shopping complex or mall or for different area s and for different period.

Maharashtra notifies new Shops and Establishments Law
If we look into the background and the reason behind enactment of this statute, we will see that in July , Central Government published Model Shops and Establishment Regulation of Employment and Conditions of Service Act and the states were free to adopt the same with necessary state-specific modifications. The introduction of this Model SEA , was having three major reasons behind this — i to make these legal provisions more contemporary ii to enhance the ease of doing business and iii to implement a more or less uniform statute throughout the country. Maharashtra is the first state to adopt the Model SEA , with few state-specific amendments to remain at the forefront of industrial development and reforms.
