You think that they see their work as a burden and they come here only for money and pass their entire day like gup shup etc.

Theory X (Authoritarian) according to McGregor, If you believed that your team members dislike their work and they have no motivation to doing their work or job so you should take this approach to force
your people to doing their jobs and usually it seems that this type of approach followed by those managers its called micromanaging peoples work to ensure that this work has been done or not.
Theory Y (Participative) in this approach it is just opposite if you believed that your team is very supportive and enjoys their work and ready to face new challenge and doing their work as ownership behaviour so its called Theory Y.
Above of those approaches you have followed which would be a Theory X or Theory Y, the approach that you opt it will be have significant impact simultaneously on your team to motivate them.
