We should not calculate lunch time(1 Hr) as working hour. Yes, Total working hours is 8hrs and 1hr for lunch break. regards, Subodh

As per the Factories Act, a worker has to get at least half an hour rest after working for five hours. In that way half an hour rest is prescribed under statue for a work period of eight hours. Overtime is paid for working above nine hours in a day or 48 hours in a week. So nine hour limit per day is there to work without over-time however in any way the working hour should not exceed 48 hours in a week under normal conditions.

Dear HR mate
Total working hour per day should be maximum of 9 hrs and per week it should be 48 hrs. If a person serves for more than 48 hrs in a week he should be double Over Time payment. If he took one day leave then He will have to work 9 hrs for 5 days 8 hrs normal Pay + 1 hr single OT, and over & above whatever duration of work should be taken as double OT payment. Hence as per labour law (Take reference from Factories Act 1948) Every 5 hrs work 1/2 hr break to be given, which is not required to be taken into account for making payment. If a person worked for 24 hrs he will get one day present and 14 hrs Double OT pay. If he becomes 1 day absent then he will get 1 day present, 1 hr single OT pay & 13 Hrs Double OT Pay.
I think it will be sufficient to your querry.

Everybody is create confusion,
It is not like that.
9 hours per day or 48 hours/week means your maximum daily working hours 9 hours ,this is for some organisation those have five days in a week.
This is exlcuding lunch or tea breaks.
But if you have working in shift of 8 hours in each,then this lunch/tea break within 8 hours which is depends on state govt rules.
generally lunch break is 30 minutes to 1 hour per day it is state defined.
48 hours in a week:this can be in two ways
Option-A, eight hours per day and 8x6=48 hours/week.
option-B, 9 hours per day and 9x5=45 hours and adjust in working in any alternative saturday or 9 & half hours per day ,9.5x5=47.5 per week.
But daily total working hours including break should not be 10 & half hours per day.

In IT based companies mostly it is 8hr for work and 1hr for lunch. In a week employees get 2 days week off so, the total working hour is 9*5=45 including lunch hour, so one has 3 hrs left in hand

Dear
Period of lunch break can not be stated to be the working hours. Here 9 hours is the spread over & 8 hours are working hours per day. One hour is to be considered as rest interval.

Mr. Khola,
Does that mean that if an organization has 9 hrs each day x 5 days a week work pattern where 1 hr each day is for Lunch & Tea Breaks have actually 8 x 5 = 40 hrs of working. Can we get additional 8 hrs work done by employees, on requirement basis, in a week without paying them overtime.
Please clarify??
Thanks

Dear Saurabh,
You are right in saying that this will come to only 40 hours working in a week. The employer have the right to change the working hours but as this will be a change in the condition of service as mentioned in fourth schedule IV of the Industrial Disputes Act,1947 & hence this will attract section 9A of The I D Act,1947. Plz go through Section 9A of this Act & then take action accordingly for the increase in working hours of a workman.
