Uttar Pradesh government revokes its controversial order of 12 hours work shift for industrial workers

The Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government on Saturday revoked its very controversial order that allowed the working hours of industrial workers from 8 hours to 12 hours per day.”

The move from the U.P. government has come after receiving the notice on a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed in Allahabad High Court.


On May 7th, 2020, the Government of U.P. had passed “The Uttar Pradesh Temporary Exemption from Certain Labour Laws Ordinance,” an ordinance to suspend most of the labour laws for three years in a bid to attract companies which are relocating from China to India.

However, it will not impact the recently amended labour laws as the order to increase the working hours for industrial workers was different from the ordinance amending the laws.
