In West Bengal, Karnataka & Haryana Shops Act is not applicable to 'telephone services'...i learnt that there is judgement to apply this Act to private companies in these doubt is the courts are there to give intepretation and not for changing the provisions any law...amendments are empowered with Assembly/Parliament or with Government....Please adivse
