A model law that allows shops, malls and other establishments to operate throughout the year received Cabinet approval, which will give them the flexibility to open and shut at their convenience.

The law covers establishments employing 10 or more workers except manufacturing units and will provide freedom to operate 365 days with flexibility on timing to open and close.
It also provides for women to be employed on night shifts with adequate security and calls for better working conditions for employees such as drinking water, canteen, first aid, lavatory and creche.

"The Model Shops and Establishment (Regulation of Employment and Condition of Services) Bill 2016 has been cleared by the Cabinet," a source said.

The model law will not require Parliament's approval.

As per the proposal mooted by the Labour Ministry, the model law can be adopted by states with a provision of modifying it as per their requirement.

The model law is aimed at generating additional employment as shops and establishments will have freedom to operate for longer hours requiring more manpower.

It also provides exemption to highly-skilled workers like those in IT and bio-technology from daily working hours (9 hours) and weekly working hours (48 hours).

The law is designed to bring in uniformity in legislative provisions, making it easier for all the states to adopt it and ensure uniform working conditions across the country.

The Centre has been receiving suggestions from time to time to enact the model law, which the states could consider for enforcement either by adopting the central law or necessary modification by the state law.

Every law has its own advantages and disadvantages. This law may be help for people who work late night. But I think such arrangements would already be there near their work place like Hospitals, bus stations, Railway stations for instance. In case Govt, intends to spread the scope beyond that security aspect would be a big issue. Law and order pan India during nights are not that safe now a days. Hope Govt. must have considered that aspect very well.

We are in the age of CONSUMERISM. Is it bad? Is it a sin? If so why?
It is akin to saying that we are in Kaliyuga.
According to Wiki,

In the domain of economics, "consumerism" refers to economic policies placing emphasis on consumption. In an abstract sense, it is the consideration that the free choice of consumers should strongly orient the choice by manufacturers of what is produced and how, and therefore orient the economic organization of a society.

Overall, since the end of the 20th century, the burgeoning of consumerism as a way of life across all domains has remade politics, economics and culture:

In the almost complete absence of other sustained macro-political and social narratives – concern about global climate change notwithstanding – the pursuit of the 'good life' through practices of what is known as 'consumerism' has become one of the dominant global social forces, cutting across differences of religion, class, gender, ethnicity and nationality.

The idea that producers should make what people want, not what they happen to make, is relatively new. It is an idea that fundamentally transfers power from institutions to individuals. Consumerism — the ideology that encourages the acquisition of goods and services in ever increasing amounts — is the defining “ism” of
our time. It is an ideology that empowers us with choice, as much as it traps us by perpetuating ridiculous ideals (such as anorexic models). By examining the contradictory impetuses it provides, we may gain insight into the reactions of a fervently consumerist young Indian society to a state that tries to push an illiberal
social agenda.
