Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah on Friday directed the bureaucracy to reach office on time.


The CM paid a visit to the New Sindh Secretariat where he was welcomed by Sindh Chief Secretary Dr Fakhre Alam. Shah noticed that some secretaries of provincial government departments were absent from their offices at 9:30am.

The CM instructed the chief secretary to issue directives to the secretaries to arrive on time at their offices. Later, the Sind government’s services secretary issued a circular on the issue and sent it to all key officials, offices and authorities of the Sindh government.

The circular titled ‘Observance of Official Timings’ states: “I am directed to refer to the subject noted above and to state that it has been observed that some of the officers do not observe office timings properly.

“Therefore, I am directed to advise you to strictly follow the office timings and issue such instructions to your subordinate offices also to follow the same, otherwise, action will be taken against the delinquents under the rules.”
