Goa permits 12-Hour Shifts in Industries

To help factories cope with the shortage of workers due to the current restrictions, the state government has granted an exemption to all factories to allow 12-hour shifts, initially until July 31, 2020, Sawant told reporters in Panaji.

The government will have to bear a theoretical economic cost, but it will provide a fillip for businesses, Sawant said.

Economic measures also include the validity of certificates and fitness permits (all types), learners and drivers licenses, registration documents and other documents whose validity was to expire between February 1 and September 30.

The last date of renewal of excise licences was extended from.March 31 to June 30 without penalty, Sawant added.
