Each year, in connection with celebrations of the Eid-Ul-Azha, Government declares National holidays in Pakistan. During the schedule,  Government and Private offices observe holidays in Pakistan.

There are some offices which are working 5 days a week, whereas, some offices remain open 6 days a week. Hence, the schedule for both types of institutions is different. Here I have mentioned the schedule for the Eid-Ul-Azha vacation in relation to the type of offices.
