For any one irrespective of their position it will be 8 hrs / 48 hrs only the thing that you can pay oT for the remaining hours but my advise is being a bank it is better to deploy the guards for only for 8 hrs otherwise there is every chance of people get tired and unable to concentrate on their works With best regards - kameswarao

It is better to reduce the hrs and have an extra person who also works for 8 hrs. 12 hrs of working reduces the efficeincy level why pay extra stick to legal grounds. Sonali

Thanks again, But my point is we r giving all financial benefits like (2 Salary for Closing day (Bank's financial closing allowances) , Bonus and festival advance) but these are not mentioned in standing letter (Service Letter) and closing allowance and bonus are not his rights but as per Bank's practice they are getting all this things , So can we reduce Closing allw. and bonus from his benefits and it is also not a part of his salary packages pl. reply ...

Hi Mukesh, As per the labour law, 8hrs duty per day / 48 hrs per week, is what is the norm. The additional hours can be given as OT. But in practical terms, security guards do duty for 12 hrs. Hence it will be the Boards decision on how it has to go about it. As per the labour law, you cannot reduce Bonus , as it is a legal compliance. Whether its mentioned in the Service Letter / Appointment Letter or not. As the Bank is giving closing allowance from its side, the board can think of reducing it. As its a Bank and is always at risk, it is adviciable to have duties for 8 hrs per day, so that the security is not fatigued and can concentrate on his duties. I can understand it is the time of cost cutting, but also for cost cutting you have to be sensible. Any further clarification you can contact me at

Dear Mr Mukesh, I think you should definetely go through the labour laws and minimum wages act applicable to your state. I have been in the Industrial security management for almost 10 years. For every 6 days there has to one day off as per the rules and there are elaborate rules and regulations concerning to every trade as per the minimum wages and labour Act. With regard to the employees working hours it is mandatory that the minimum working hours is 48 hours per week / 8 hours per day irrespestive of trade an employee is working for. The other welfare measures you must comply with your management people and in consultation with the policies of top management. Also we do not know whether they are your own employees or outsourced one. Regards. V. Rangarajan.
