Nilesh Shah and Sanjeev Sanyal Advocate for 12-Hour Workdays to Boost India’s Growth

Nilesh Shah, CEO of Kotak AMC, believes that for India to grow faster, one generation needs to work 12-hour days, similar to the work ethic in countries like Korea, Japan, and China. He shared this view on the podcast “Invest Aaj For Kal with Anant Ladha.” Shah said, “We need to work 12 hours per day for 365 days.”

Economist Sanjeev Sanyal agreed, saying that one generation must work hard but also balance family life and contribute to India’s progress. Sanyal emphasized the need to work towards sustainable practices while maintaining a balanced population.


However, not everyone agrees. X user Lerrisa Fernand criticized the idea of long work hours, sarcastically noting that it would leave no time for family or personal health.

This debate is not new. Narayana Murthy’s call for a 70-hour work week also sparked discussions. Some business owners agree on the need for increased productivity, while others question if employees are adequately compensated.

Chaitanya Ramalingegowda, co-founder of Wakefit, expressed support for longer work weeks, stating on LinkedIn, “We believe we should all put in 70 hours every week for maximum productivity.”
