Update : 28 Feb 2024, 16:43

The government has fixed the office hours office timing for the upcoming holy month of Ramadan from 9 am to 3:30 pm for all government, semi-government, autonomous and semi-autonomous institutions. 

The decision came at a Cabinet meeting held on Wednesday (28 February), Cabinet Secretary Mahbub Hossain said in a press briefing at the Secretariat.

“During the  Ramadan, 9am to 3:30pm was fixed as the office timing from Sunday to Thursday. And there’ll be a 15-minute break from 1:15 to 1:30pm for Zohr prayers,” cabinet secretary Md Mahbub Hossain said while briefing reporters at the secretariat. 

However, banks, insurance companies, financial institutions, post, railway, hospitals, state-run mills and factories and other emergency service-providing organisations will fix their own office time considering their own laws and public interest.

Besides, the Supreme Court will fix the office timing for all courts which are under its authority.  The holy month of Ramadan is expected to begin on March 12,  subject to sighting the moon.
