Govt announces new office hours as NAB restores Saturday off
The federal government has issued new office hours after Ramadan and decided to go ahead with Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s announcement of a six-day workweek.
Overlooking the protests by some of the government employees, the Establishment Division has decided not to restore the Saturday off and, consequently, all the federal government employees will now work from Monday to Saturday.
The offices will be opened at 8am and closed at 3pm on all week days except Friday, when the offices will be closed at 1pm, according to a notification issued by the Establishment Division.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB), however, has restored the Saturday off for its employees.
The NAB employees will be working longer hours on each of the five days a week.
NAB office will open at 8:30am and close at 4:30pm.
Meanwhile, PM Shehbaz Friday morning told the nation to “get back to work now” after the Eid holidays.
Subh bakhair. Hope you all had wonderful time with your families during Eid holidays & rested well…— Shehbaz Sharif (@CMShehbaz) May 6, 2022
Let us get back to work now!
In a tweet he posted early morning, the prime minister bid good morning to people and said that he believed everyone had “rested well” during the Eid holidays.
