As per the ministry of labour the standard duty timings in India for Hotel Industry Staff is 8 Hours.

In a straight shift not more than 9 hours shift can be worked for 6 days in a week which should have to fall in the limit of 48 hours a week.

It is supposed to be 8hrs and 6 days in a week but hardly any hotel follows this. Most of the hotel only the reporting time is correctly followed but no one cares about when you leave from the shift.

I think F&B service department and Kitchen are the two such department normally ask their staff to work more than what you are supposed to be actually doing…

Haha yes… rightly said. No hotel management really care about the long duty hours or when you leave from the shift. But they will closely monitor and harass you if you are late to report you to work.
