Is a 9-hour shift too long ?

While most of the organizations in India follow a nine-hour a day policy, that is the maximum an organization can make its employees work. And not so when the number of working days in a week are six, as the total hours an employee can be made to work in a week should not exceed 48.

A thumb rule that's followed by many is "8 hours work, 8 hours play, 8 hours sleep". This is widely considered a better model for work-hours as a shift that lasts more than eight hours can take a toll on one's personal life.
