Please note the following:
a) If the rules of your organisation permit then there is nothing wrong in moonlighting per se. Therefore, please check the provisions of the appointment letter first. However, most of the companies do not allow their employees to take second job.
b) The additional factor that comes into consideration is your health. Already you are working in the night time. Night duties are strenuous than day duties. If you are spending 9-10 hours in your regular employment which includes time spent in commutation as well then when will you take rest and when will you do household chores? Please note that your second earning should not come at the expense of your health.
c) Even if you take second job surreptitiously, then tell your employer to show you as consultant and when you raise your invoice, you may raise it on some non-earning family member like your mother or brother or sister etc. However, how far branded companies or organised companies will allow this kind of arrangement that remains to be seen. With the GST in place, the company will have to deal with you as Unregistered Dealer (URD). Anyway, the company will not have financial loss because of URD as they can take input credit anyway.
d) If the company shows you casual employee then what are the rules post-GST era that I do not know, however, the company will have to pay 4.5% ESI on the remuneration that they will pay to you. This will be additional burden to them and they may try to recover this amount from you.
Lastly, let me add about your post. Apart from your regular employment, you wanted to take up additional work to meet family obligations. The force that binds you to your kins is laudable. Your post demonstrates the strength and elevation of your character. Keep it up!
All the best!

You have to choose from both the jobs as to which job you wish to keep and which you wish to leave.
If you are a regular employee or even casual employee, you will have 2 ESI numbers & 2 PF numbers which is illegal.
