Hr. Khaiser Ali Shah Started The Discussion:
Can you please guide me in how to calculate normal overtime hour factor. What I know is
Basic salary X 12Months / 365Days = 1 day avg Basic Salary
1 day avg basic salary / 8hrs = 1 hr avg basic salary
1 hr avg basic salary X 1.5Factor = 1 hr normal overtime cost.
Please tell me if this is the actual true formula if not please guide me for the best one.
Thanks & Regards,

Dear Mr Shah,
As per my opinion you can calculate the overtime amt by fixing a certain amt for per hour of extra work & multiply the amt with no. hours of extra work performed which would ultimately give you the Overtime amt earned by an employee. For ex XYZ works for 5hrs extra & let us suppose that we have fixed an amt of 100 rupees per hour for the overtime work so the amt that XYZ would be eligible would be 100*5 = 500Rs.
Overtime calculation varies from country to country depending on the factories act. In India overtime is given as double the normal rate(Basic+DA) for the extra durt hours. If it is 31 days duty then one hour rate is found as A/31/8 and if it is 26 days work then one hour rate is found as A/26/8 and so on.
Mr.Tiwari is right OT should be paid double the wages ;
when calculating hourly wage we should not take 9,10 hours we should only take 8 hours because in Factories act it has been stated that working hours should be 8 hours including all intervals.
And importantly we should not allow an employee to work overtime above 48 hours in 3 months
