Originally the Section 66(1) (b) provided as follows:
Section 66(1)(b) proviso (Further restrictions on employment of women) Section 66(1) amongst others restricted women employees to work in any factory except between the hours of 6 A.M. to 7 P.M.However, the State Government may, by a notification in the Official Gazette, vary these limits to the extent that no woman shall be employed in factory between the hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
But with the amendment of 2015 in Maharashtra Rules, the postion has gone undergone change. The women workers are now allowed to work even between 7:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. in any factory in which prescribed adequate safety and security measures or safeguards are provided. Women workers are now allowed to work in night shift provided the prescribed rules as to their safety and safeguards is adequately provided.
Note: At present the rules for adequate safety and safeguard of women employees have not been provided in the Maharashtra Factories Rules 1963.
You may verify the position from the office of local factory inspector. As the position is understood, in Maharashtra there is no requirement of consent of women employees for night shift. Rest depends on the applicable provision of Standing Orders and Notice of change requirements highlighted already.

From India, Mumbai
The rules can be modified if there is requirement of women employee during night shift and arrangement and safety of women already done.The same modified in company standing orders approved by labour department with conditions of women employee in night shift.
