It is understood that under Maharashtra Factories Act 1948 the maximum quarterly overtime limit is 50 hours. Whether it is correct? Whether similar limits are applicable to all the states? Please clarify.

India has two major laws concerning working hours of workers i.e. the Factory Act, 1948 and Shops & Establishment Act.
Amendments taken place under Maharashtra Factories Act on 2.12.2015 are enforced by
Govt. of Maharashtra w.e.f. 1st Feb., 2016 as per Notification dated 1.2.2016
• Overtime
Prior to this amendment, the maximum hours of overtime as per section 65, workers could
perform in a quarter of a year was 75 hours overtime. The amendment is made and now workers
in a quarter of the year can perform not more than 115 hours of overtime. This is subject to
requirement of the work of the factory and state Government has a right to impose such terms
and conditions while granting an exemption in this regard. Such exemption, if granted, then will
be from all the provisions in sections 51, 52, 54 and 56 of the Factories Act.
