Thanks for your suggestion, it is helpfull....

Still the qurarry remains...

1 - What is the standard depth of digging we should adopt for cable laying in Factory Primise.
2.  What sort of protection - from JCB; Rodents and Environment threats we should put... Like steel jacketing ; Brick brotection etc.
3. What sort of marking above ground is advisable after cable laying.
4. Any thing else we should take up from vendor to do - who would be doing cable installation and digging for cabling.
5. Is there any Standard or any de-facto standard to do all Cable laying.

I welcome your expert suggestions/judgements over this.

Thanks & Regards,
