The government has announced the official working hours for state institutions and government offices during the upcoming fasting month of Ramadan.

On Monday, the President’s Office revealed that working hours for government institutions and offices have been set from 9am to 1pm during the fasting month, as observed in previous years as well.

The same working hours will be effective during the first seven days of Shawwal, the Islamic month that follows right after Ramadan, which will begin in April.

The President’s Office has urged government offices and institutions to strictly adhere to the official working hours when planning events as well.

Government employees will work four hours during the fasting month.

The government earlier in February declared the last 10 days of Ramadan as public holidays.

The president reached the decision following deliberations held on a paper submitted by the Ministry of Islamic Affairs during a cabinet meeting held on 17 December 2023.

This was done with a purpose of fostering Islamic values within the community as well as to encourage the public to enhance their engagement in religious practices.

This will also allow citizens to prioritize religious observances during the holy month.

The decision comes in accordance with one of the president’s presidential pledges.

Government offices and state institutions have been instructed to ensure essential services are provided to the public, and specific information regarding the operation hours during these days are provided efficiently.

The President’s Office also held a meeting with relevant authorities to discuss the logistics for delivering essential services during the last ten days of Ramadan.
