Popular News

The government has reset timing for the closure of shops, markets and shopping malls from July 1 to 10 for the convenience of businessmen and customers ahead of the Eid-ul-Azha.

As per the new timing, the business establishments will be closed at 10:00pm instead of 8:00pm.  

Labour and employment ministry came up with the decision issuing a gazette notification on Wednesday.

Earlier, the government put all shops and markets on compulsory closure at 8pm with effect from Monday on the plea of saving electricity.

However, the government has shown a lenient view following a demand by the business leaders to facilitate sales ahead of Eid.
