Dear Satya,
Certainly it is not possible to require such employees to work over time to the extent of 4 hours every day under any Labor Law; depending on the type of the industrial establishments, there are daily/quarterly limitations on the no of hours of O.T.
Therefore, it is better to revise the man-power and reschedule the spread over of the working hours of the Security Personnel accordingly without giving room for statutory violations.

Dear satyaji,
Security guards working for 12hrs is not advisable.
The psar act also states that under the scheme of guard boards.
It is therefore appoint 8hrs shift.and arrange for relieving duties against weekly off.This will ensure better quality in performance as well as sustainance of guards.thus reducing attrition.
We provide guards under such schemes with proper audit and police verification of guards.

Ground reality is that Security Guards, are doing 12 hrs shift as it is convenient to the for more than one reason. 8 hrs shift means change of guard at odd times and less pay. Col.Suresh Rathi
