Our factory runs in all the three shifts in a day, each shift is of 8 hours . We have engaged security services, who work in shift, which is of 12 hours . We are paying them Minimum wages under the Act i.e for 8 + 4 hours.
Query : As we are covered under Factories Act, are they to be employed for 8 hours or can they work for 12 hours?

Basic working hours is 8 hours only whether Factories Act or State Shops and Establishment acts..
Extra hours would have to be on overtime(OT) subject to maximum hours of OT permissible under State laws.
Making a Guard work for 12 hours daily will have reduced security value as person will be fatigued and we should avoid such extra working hours as a matter of routine.
