The Eid-ul-Fitr 2017 is likely to fall on Monday on 26th June, according to Met Office officials.
Although there will three holidays for Eid but federal government will enjoy five holidays in a week with the routine holiday of Saturday and Sunday.
Sad news for the people who enjoy long weekend, now they would not be able to have the opportunity to do it anymore, as the Federal government has decided to cut off the Saturday holidays.
The Federal government, On Wednesday, has declared that Saturday will no longer be a weekly day off in the Federal departments across the country.
The holidays on Saturday and Sunday was proposed by the previous government in order to handle the energy crisis confronted by the country till now.
The present government has so far improved the electricity situation in the country which is why earlier ways are being returned. The reports said that the two holidays in a week have greatly affected the enactment and competence of the Federal departments. Therefore the government has decided that there will be only one holiday in a week i.e. on Sunday.
In this regard the summery has been sent to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and hoped will be accepted and updated on the proposal by the Interior Minister.
