Government suggests nine hours working day in draft labour code




The labour ministry has suggested 9 hour regular working day in its draft wage code as against 8 hours now but stayed away from fixing a national minimum wage.

The draft rule will be finalised in December after it receives public comments for a month.

The country will be divided into three geographic categories – metropolitan area with a population of 40 lakh or more, non-metropolitan area with a population of 10-40 lakh and rural areas.
