Time To Party All Night! Shops, Restaurants, Malls To Remain Open 24*7

Thanks to 7th Pay Commission, we will soon have shops, malls, restaurants, and other establishments operate 24*7 throughout the year.

Cabinet approved the model law that allows doing the same. According to the proposal, it will cover establishments employing 10 or more workers except manufacturing units and will provide freedom to operate 365 days in a year with flexibility on timing to open and close.


The model law asks that women should be employed  in night shifts with adequate security.

Further, it asks for better working conditions like drinking water, canteen, first aid, lavatory for workers.
