The notification added that all public institutions under the federal government will continue to observe the mentioned office timings unless modified.

Days after assuming the office, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif had abolished Saturday as a weekly holiday and revised the office hours for all federal government offices and institutions.

The move sparked a strong reaction from employees, triggering a series of protest demonstrations even during the month of Ramadan, demanding the government to revert its decision.


  • Private sector still ruining life of employees with 8 to 12 hours shift 6 days a week. Why different law for govt employees? Through them out such lazy people and appoint people on equal basis as private sector doing or do the justice and apply the rule equally on private sector.

  • As usual Pakistan failing nation by these losers. While the people are working crazy amounts well over at least 40 hours a week, these imported folks going to work only measly 31 hrs with who knows how much efficiency considering their corrupt nature
