I think labour acts will apply for software companies.

H. S. Thukral (Lawyer)     18 August 2009

Any software company shall be an Industry as defined in section 2(j) of the Industrial Disputes Act, amenable to Industrial Laws..

Harbhajan is right.

Software companies answer the definition of Industry and therefore are amenable to labour laws. however all labour laws will not be applicable to them and it shall depend on nature of activity,number of employees, salary etc
