ISLAMABAD: In a bid to save energy and meet the country’s demand amid scorching summer, the federal government has decided to restore two weekly offs at public offices, well-placed sources told Geo News.
However, the final decision about the two weekly offs will be taken in a meeting of the federal cabinet scheduled to be held tomorrow.
