Hi Can Any body help out on the following :

1. Overtime can be sanctioned for 75 Hours in one Quarter, my doubt is whether it is for one person or total persons?

2. If we want to take O.T. Exemption what is the procedure to be followed ?

With regards

Hi Murthy,

First of all I would like to inform you that the Overtime Limit is 50 Hrs Quarterly for One Person. It can be extended upto 72 Hrs in a Quarter after getting approval from Labour Deptt.

No Expemption can be granted for Over Time.

Under Sec 64 (iv) of the factories Act, OT hours in any quarter shall not exceed 50.

Under Sec. 65, Chief Inspector of Factories may grant exemption upto 75 hours in any quarter if he is satisfied that the exisgencies and nature of work it require to keep overtime.

Chief Inspector has power to grant upto 75 hours in a quarter and not more than that.

malikjs -  Member Since: Oct 2008
total number of hours of work in any day shall not exceed ten.
toatl number of hours in a week including overtime shall not exceed 60.
total number of hours of overtime shaqll not exceed 50 in a quarter.
as per section 66 no exemption for overtime can be granted in case of women employees.
it means women emplyees can not be asked to work on ovetime.
