This has with reference to your query... please note in every company normal working hours are 9 hrs in a day including 1 hour break for tea and lunah.
Even as per the law a Workmen will be eligible for Overtime payment after working more than 9 hrs. in a day.
As you have not mentioned on what level your are working in your company; But, I assume your level may be above Workmen. Therfore, you are not entitle for Overtime.
But against extra working hours, mutually all the employees can request to your higher management to consider some monetary or non-monetary benefits towards extra working hours. (Benefits in terms of Incentive or Comp. off or Alternatively Saturday off etc...)
However, your Management not bond to consider any of above benefits in case if they don't want to.

You have not mentioned you work in Govt sector or Pvt sector. You work on operative side or Administrave side.
Ok. Considering if you are working on operative side, telecom sector being essential services, in obvious conditions, when it demands you may have to work and solve the issues if it is technical side. For which your expertise might be used. However, there could not be any compulsion if it is not in any emergency in nature.
