Hi Anushree,

The Karnataka Government has amended the work hours under the provisions of the Shops and Establishments Act.

As per the amendment, no employee in any establishment shall be required or allowed to work for more than nine hours on any day and forty-eight hours in any week and the total number of hours of work including overtime shall not exceed ten hours in any day except on the day of stock-taking and preparation of accounts. Further, the total number of overtime hours worked by an employee not to exceed fifty hours in a period of three continuous months.
