The maximum time limit for this work has been 9 hours so far.

Opponents allege that working hours are being increased in detours. This will disrupt the interests of the workers.

The draft also states that no worker can be made to work for more than 5 hours continuously. The total work limit will not exceed 12 hours per week. The decision is thought to have been made in the wake of the epidemic.

Please be informed that three rules namely Industrial Relations Code 2020, Occupational Safety, Health and Working Conditions Code (Employee-Employee Relations in Industry) 2020 (Health and Safety Guarantee at Work) and Code on Social Security 2020 (Social Security Rules) have been passed in both the Houses of Parliament. . Earlier, the wage law was passed in 2019 but it has not been implemented yet.
