Factories Act Sec. 52. Weekly holidays. (1) No adult worker shall be required or allowed to work in a factory on the first day of the week (hereinafter referred to as the said day), unless--
(a) he has or will have a holiday for a whole day on one of the three days immediately before or after the said day, and
(b) the manager of the factory has, before the said day or the substituted day under clause (a), whichever is
(i) delivered a notice at the office of the Inspector of his intention to require the worker to work on the said day and of the day which is to be substituted, and
(ii) displayed a notice to that effect in the factory:
Provided that no substitution shall be made which will result in any worker working for more than ten days consecutively without a holiday for a whole day.
In the light of above whether there is any provision for compulsory Holiday/weekly off for Persons/ Employees working in the commercial establishment for not to work constantly more than 10 days.

Thanks, Shops & Establishment Act defines regarding Weekly Holiday for Establishments and daily & weekly working hours of employee however in case if the employee is working for more than the defined hours constantly in that case is there any specific Provision for Compulsory Off Day.
