Mr. Sandeep, I think you need to hire a local plating consultant. There are hundreds of tests of plating quality, from salt spray tests and a dozen variations on them, to abrasion tests, hardness tests, thickness tests, porosity tests, ductility tests, adhesion tests, and on and on.

First off, you should be plating to a specification. They have a QC section. Second, did you stop to consider the number of metals that are electroplated? Quality checks for platinum plate are vastly different than iron plate. Further, the checks for cosmetic gold are a lot different than functional or industrial gold plate.
Your question is like asking how to fix engines, much too wide.
