According to the Indian Consulate, the Ministry of Labour has said that despite the cut in the midday working time ban, workers will get an extra 30 minutes a day to rest.

Speaking to Construction Week, the Indian labour consul, B S Mubarak, said: “We called up the Ministry of Labour to enquire about the decrease in the rest hours for the workers, and were told that the companies will have to provide rest areas for the workers on the construction sites so that they don’t have to travel back to their camps in the afternoon.”

Last year, workers would end up commuting to and from their camps for at least two hours during their break time in the afternoon, reducing the amount of time in which they could take rest periods.

According to the ministry, the workers will now be able to do away with the commuting and make full use of the two-and-a-half hours of rest time on site in temporary camps built by the construction companies.
