Yes, there are laws prohibiting working for more than 8 hours and providing for overtime payment for working for more than 8 hours in a day. The Law enforcing authorities like Factory Inspector or Labour Officer will certainly order the management to restrict the working time to 8 hours. But what is the use of such interference by the department? They can not direct the management to appoint more employees so that the extra duty that each employee does can be done by the additional man power employed.

In this highly competitive world each unit of saving in labour cost will add to profit. As such, no employer can imagine of any more engagement of labour which increases cost. As far as employees are concerned, being in employment is far better than not being in employment. Once you lose it, you would start thinking of a job which may call for even 12 or 15 hours of work.

Moreover, if the employer were to restrict the working hours to 8 hours, then it would be open to him to pay only the minimum wages fixed by the government. In other words, the state's labour department has right to restrict working hours to 8 hours but has no right to instruct the employer to pay a salary higher than the minimum wages fixed. The employer, on the other hand, has no obligation to provide any additional facilities and benefits other than that are statutory like ESI or EPF. I presume many financial establishments pay fair salary and allowances to employees which will compensate the extra work put in by the employees.
