Office Holidays: The government has announced new office hours, which include six working days

For federally managed public departments around the country, the government has decreased office hours.

All federal government offices will operate six days a week, with Friday being a half day, according to a notification issued by the Cabinet Secretariat Establishment Division on Friday.

According to the notification, which ProPakistani has a copy of, the offices will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 03:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and Saturday, with a 30-minute prayer break from 1:00 p.m. to 01:30 p.m.

On Fridays, the offices will operate till 01:00 PM.

The letter further said that, unless otherwise stated, all federally funded public institutions shall continue to follow the above-mentioned office hours.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif removed Saturday as a weekly vacation and altered the business hours for all federal government departments and organisations within days after taking office.

Employees reacted angrily to the move, leading to a series of protest actions even during Ramadan, asking that the government reverse its decision.
