Legally night shift allowance can't be claimed in your case.However, if your employer (contractor) is bounded by any current settlement under the Industrial Disputes Act 1947 to this effect and you are a covered workman under such settlement, you are eligible to receive all benefits agreed upon under such settlement.Please check the position and act accordingly.For further instructions contact lawRato.
