The federal cabinet has given the go ahead to restore weekly offs on Saturdays in government offices, Geo News reported Tuesday, citing sources.
The cabinet met under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and discussed how the government can deal with the energy crisis at hand due to which the public has had to suffer hours-long load-shedding.
Although the cabinet approved the resumption of Saturdays as a holiday, no decision could be made over closing the markets earlier by 7pm to save power, the sources said.
Apart from this, a 40% cut in the fuel quota of ministers and government employees was also reportedly approved.
