No proposal to change working hours for employees: Govt

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

The central is not considering any proposal to change office hours for its employees, the Personnel Ministry said today.

In a statement, the ministry referred to a item that claimed that central employees' working hours will be changed and scheduled from 9 AM to 7 PM. It was also stated in the report that the holiday of Saturday will also be done away with for the central employees.

It is clarified that there is no such proposal under the consideration of the central government, it said.

"The media 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.
