30,000 women work shiftwork in Bangalore, pushing government towards change

An article in the Deccan Herald (Bangalore, India) notes that current law "prohibits employment of women and young persons during night but in 2002, the State government made a conditional exemption for IT and ITES firms."  Under these exemptions, employers are strictly held to 15 criteria, violation of which can result in withdrawal of the exemption.  For more on this, see the article "30,000 Bangalore women work in night shifts".
