HOURS OF WORK
4.1 Section 51 of the Factories Act, 1948 prescribes that no adult worker shall be required or
allowed to work in a factory for more than forty-eight hours in any week. Further, Section 54
stipulates that subject to the provision of Section 51 no adult worker shall be required or
allowed to work in a factory for more than nine hours in any day. However, there is a provision
to this section which states that subject to the prior approval of the Chief Inspector, the daily
maximum hours specified in Section 54 may be exceeded in order to facilitate the change of shifts.
Idea as given above is not in order.

To add further to this subject, under the provisions of the Factories Act , you are prohibited to have the arrangement of working you propose and if you do , it will be blatant violation of the F A which is punishable with fine and imprisonment on conviction.
