ISLAMABAD: Following Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif taking charge of the office, the timings of the federal government offices for the holy month of Ramadan have been changed.

The updated timings have been implemented with immediate effect, according to a notification issued by the Establishment Division Tuesday, and will continue to remain the same unless they are withdrawn or modified.

Days Timings
Monday to Thursdays and Saturday 8am-3pm (Prayer break: 1-1:30pm)
Friday 8am-1pm

The newly elected premier has abolished two weekly offs in a week and government offices will now remain open six days a week instead. Moreover, the premier has also changed office timings to 8am.

On his first day in office, Shehbaz sent officials of the PM Office into panic as his surprise arrival early in the morning worried the employees and officers who had not reached the office.
