Higher Education Commission Islamabad (HRM Division) issued an Office Order on 12-05-2022 in connection with the Notification of 5 Working Days a Week HEC. The details are as under:
Notification of 5 Working Days a Week HEC in Universities
In order to synchronize with the timings observed in universities, all the Offices of Higher Education Commission (HEC) shall work five days a week and shall observe the following office timings, with immediate effect and until further orders;
|Monday to Thursday||08:30 am to 04:30 pm|
|Prayers and lunch Break from 01:00 to 01:30 PM|
|Friday||08:30 am to 04:30 pm|
|Prayers and lunch Break from 12:30 to 02:00 PM|
One BPS-18 Officer and allied staff would be notified every Saturday by HEC Divisions at Head Office / Regional Offices with a copy to Chairman and Executive Director along with phone numbers/ emails and will be on standby duty at their respective residences on Saturday to respond to any query received from President’s/PM’s/Ministry’s/Provincial Government Offices etc.
This issues with the approval of the Chairman, HEC.
This is a good step by Higher Education Commission to save the fuels and energy. All other departments of the Government are also demanding the same to shift the offices into five working days a week instead of six. In this regard that the total working hours in a week will remain the same. The employees are not only demanding the 5 working days a week schedule but they are also asking for an increase in salaries in the coming Budget 2022-23. This increase in pay and allowances will facilitate the employees to work more efficiently. Let’s see and hope for the best from the Government side in the coming days.
