Half day during aricleship period

CA Nazia Shaikh (student) (174 Points)

06 December 2012  


I am doing my CA Articleship.My articleship timings are 11-7 (Mon to Fri) and 11-6 on Saturdays.For my CA coaching classes I have been taking half days for Saturdays i.e. I am working from 11-2 and my firm deducts my pay accordingly while granting me such half days.But I want to know whether such half days will be considered as full working days while counting the days of my CA articleship? or will they be considered as holidays or half days?

As per the Institute , articles are supposed to be working for not more than 35 hours a week ! but many articles work for about 48-50 hrs!!.frown
