in sealsah division passenger

in sealsah division passenger link diagrammed is prepared in such a way that
1)duty hours is less than 8 hours and the running staff( guard and DRIVER) is called again after 12 hours of Hq rest
2) A weekly rest is given of 30 hrs but this time Hq rest is ignored. as a result running staff have to work 365 days in a year.
it is very much troublesome to work without a calender day rest.
please let me know whether it is right or there is some space to fight.

The order you quoted doesnt

The order you quoted doesnt say about 48 hours. See the order RBE 37/2010 here.

It says only " Board desire that all cases of absence of more than 36 hours should be monitored closely with a view to restrict such absence within reasonable limits. "

Maximum duty should be 12 hours (see article above)
