an application under Section 33C(2) of the ID Act before

there 12 hours a day with one weekly break. He claimed to
have worked four hours more a day during the said period but
was not paid over-time wages for the work done beyond the 8
hours of duty. He sent a demand notice to the petitioners by
registered post on 16.12.1995 claiming over-time wages but of
no avail. He made a representation to the Assistant Labour

Ultimately, he filed an application under Section 33C(2)
claiming Rs.5,01,886/- as over-time wages for the said period
along with interest.
