Here is the official notification.
Ramadan, the holy month of fasting, is almost here, and Muslims around the world are preparing to observe it. During this month, Muslims fast from dawn to dusk and break their fast with iftar in the evening.
Last week, a high-level meeting chaired by Finance Minister Ishaq Dar had decided that the office timings for all federal government offices will be 7.30 AM to 2.30 PM from Monday to Thursday.
The meeting also decided that federal government offices will close at 12.30 PM on Friday. However, a week later, the federal government has now notified slightly different timings.
