Royal Commission on Labour in India: Report(1929)||
A necessary corollary to the efficient working of this system is the laying down of definite standards of inspection, both as regards the number of visits to be paid during the season and the type of report to be submitted to the factory inspection department. For the latter purpose regular forms should be carefully prepared by that department for issue to all ex-officio inspectors and a copy of the report of each inspection made by such officers should be submitted to the Chief Inspector of Factories. We see no objection to the District Magistrates retaining powers as Inspectors of Factories, but ordinarily they cannot and need not be required to act in that capacity if the recommendations made above are carried out. A certain degree of supervision of the part-time inspectors would be a useful service on their part.
