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.

Dear Sir,
You can employ any number of women employees from No(1) in Night Shift.
You have to take responsibility to pickup and drop them from their residence safely everyday.

Pl.refer the attachments and the links provided here which would provide some insight into your query. The Kar.Shops & Estt.Act (Chap.VI) is the appropriate provision governing the matter. There has been amendment easing employing women in night shifts under certain conditions. I'll try to upload soon after I trace them. However there are no quotas for employing them.
