Please refer to factory Act 1948, maximum hours of overtime in a quarter can be performed by a workman is 50 hours. Overtime is paid in double of the wages. It is not advisable to allow any worker to perform OT hours more than his /her regular duty hours. If feasible than consider for hiring more manpower instead of allowing excessive OT hours.
