a BPO is covered by the Shops and Establishments Act which differs from state to state. Usually Shops Act imposes restrictions on the working hours beyond a certain time in the night.However having regrd to the peculiar nature of requirements of I.T.E.S establishments, the Stae governments might have permitted night shifts for women employees also.I do not envisage any restrictions imposed by the Act on the number of women employees in a night shift but the notification exempting the B.P.O establishments might have laid down conditions on protection of women employees, their transport and rest rooms etc.
You need to gothrough the Shops Act of your State.
