It was announced earlier today that the federal government would be observing Eid holidays this year. During the period between April 10 and 12, offices who observe five working days a week will observe three public holidays, and those who observe six working days a week will observe four public holidays. After the 10th, Offices who observe five working days a week will observe four public holidays.

According to the notification signed by Press Information Department (PID) Principal Information Officer Muhammad Aqib Gulzar, the prime minister has approved public holidays on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, as per the Prime Minister’s notification.

Met Office forecasts that Eid ul Fitr will fall during the first week of April, with the Shawwal moon seen on April 9 and the first day of Eid falling on April 10.

In a statement to The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD), it was announced that the crescent is expected to be born at 11:21pm on April 8 and that it will be at an age of 19 to 20 hours the next day in time for Maghrib prayers.

During the time around sundown, it was possible to spot the crescent for more than 50 minutes, it said.

It has been reported by the PMD that on April 9, there will be clear skies across the majority of the country. There are, however, reports that the northern areas might have a cloudy sky as a result of the cloud cover.
