As per Fctories Act, employee can work maximum 48 hrs in a week i.e. 8 hrs in a day and for 6 days max. every after sixth day, there must be an holiday to that employee. So if followed this, for assuming 4 weeks in a month, he needs to work 192 hrs in a month.
However, for maximum working hrs, there are different concepts under the Factories Act. For certain industries, which are specifically mentioned in the schedule attached in the Factories Act, there is exumption of maximum working hrs i.e. 48 hrs in a week & 8 hrs in a day. In that case, the employee can work for more than one shift i.e. for 16 hrs in a day (continuing 2 shifts).
I with, I have cleared you doubt

The maximum working hour act is only applicable to factories.But what in case of other fields like IT industries,consultancies services.Is the factory acts are not applicable to these fields ?if so, than why?
Because when I was working in a consultancy service they said that there is no holiday ,only sunday afternoon is closed.daily working hours is 8 hours per day.Please clear my doubts.

It depends upon the paying conditions.
If the employee comes under daily paid employee, it will be calculated as follows,
working days x daily rate of wages = to be paid wages.
In this case no need to consider the weekly off for any case.(except declared paid holidays)
If the employee comes under monthly paid employee, the calculation will be as follows,
Monthly rate of wages / total monthly days x actual working days + w/o days = to be paid wages
e.g. Rs. 5000.00 / 31 days x (3 days + wo)
In such cases, we are paying w/o, because the calculation comes for the whole days of month
I wish, this will clear your doubts..
