The central government is not considering any proposal to change office hours for its employees, the personnel ministry said on Tuesday.
In a statement, the ministry referred to a news item that claimed that central government employees’ working hours will be changed and scheduled from 9 am to 7 pm. It was also stated in the news report that the holiday on Saturday will also be done away with for central government employees.
It is clarified that there is no such proposal under the consideration of the central government, it said.
“The media news regarding the extension of working hours and abolition of holiday on Saturday for central government employees is false and baseless. There is no oral or unwritten order issued in this regard,” the ministry said.
