New office timing for public and autonomous bodies started Wednesday as the government rescheduled the office timing aimed at reducing the power consumption amid the Russia-Ukraine war and easing traffic congestion.

As per the new schedule, public offices will run from 8:00am to 3:00pm while banking hours will be from 9:00am to 3:00pm.

Earlier, the government officials discharged their duties from 9:00am to 5:00pm while banking hours were from 10:00am to 6:00pm.

Public Administration State Minister Farhad Hossain said the new office timing for the government and autonomous offices is not permanent.

“The day time is very long now and we want to use the daylight,” he said at a deal signing ceremony between Sunlife Insurance Company and Bangladesh Secretariat Reporters Forum (BSRF).
