Can the authorities of government hospital force Contractual Nurses to do 3 or 4 duties a week (12 hrs) i.e alternate day night duties. With no Casual leave.

Is there any legal guidelines regarding night duty hours for nurses in government hospital.

Yes. It is Governed by the instructions/guidelines issued by the Government.

Medical and para-medical staff has to work 24x7 but with proper break/rest hours as decided by management and agreed by individual employee.

Any suggestion depends upon the terms of contract. However, in my understanding, the principle of equal pay for equal work should apply in such cases as well.
