Police and forest officials cordoned off the premises and launched a search for the leopard, the police said.
The leopard was found roaming inside the 'Engine Department' by a security personnel.
Thousands of workers who arrived for the morning shift around 7 am, were asked to wait outside the plant for their safety, said a police officer.
"Teams of forest department officials, police and wildlife personnel have been called to catch the leopard. We have cordoned off the plant and a search operation is on to catch the animal. However, we are yet to trace it," said the officer.
In April, a leopard had entered a house in Sohna, around 30 km away, and left five people wounded.
