The new labour code is not yet implemented. Draft rules for the codes are published by majority of states.

Legal working hours differ, act-wise and state-wise in India. However, in general, it is 8-9 hrs a day and 48 hrs a week. Blue collar staff is eligible for overtime. But most legislations exempt supervisors/managers from the purview of work hours and overtime. So in general white-collar staff are not entitled to overtime even in a factory environment or in shops and commercial establishments.

For the construction industry, Building and construction workers rules (State-specific) matter. In general, 9 hrs a day and 48 hrs a week + Overtime based on set criteria.

Our Payroll Vendor mentioned that New labor is coming into effect from Oct 2022. Can you please confirm if this already approved & to be implemented. I tried checking news, there is no mention of this.
