Dear Sir,
You do not need to seek any permission under the Factories Act for employing 500 people. There is one aspect to this, if your increase in demand is temporary, you need to plan and strategise accordingly. Because after the demand is met and if there are no continuous orders, these additional 250 people will not be utilized fully. Therefore you can think of outsourcing the work if demand is temporary, if it is permanent you can engage these people. There is no procedure involved under Factories Act, except those welfare provisions which already somebody has posted above, it has to be followed and Welfare Officer is to be appointed.

Dear Anku,
I think you having permission for 250 people in the CLRA Act, You can enhance the people strength to 500 People through Dy/Addl Labour Commissioner under the CLRA Act by applying in the prescribed forms and prescribed fees too. For regular employees no permission as such is needed. it is only for contractual employees.
