Govt employees get 6-day Eid holiday
A government order on Monday announced holiday for September 11 albeit with the condition that public servants will have to work on September 24 as compensation. Muslims in Bangladesh will celebrate the Eid-ul-Azha on September 13, which is on Tuesday. Government employees typically enjoy three-day Eid holiday. Friday and Saturday are weekend while September 11 falls on Sunday. This means, government employees are getting a six-day Eid vacation. The announcement came shortly after the Public Administration Ministry proposed declaring holidays on September 11 and 15 to extend the Eid holiday. Cabinet Secretary Shafiul Alam told reporters that the ministry had proposed keeping government offices open on September 17 and 24 as compensation. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina told the meeting that a decision on the matter would be taken within a day or two, the secretary added. If September 15 is also declared a holiday, it will mean another nine-day vacation for public servants since the next two days are weekend holiday. Government employees were given a nine-day vacation in the Eid-ul-Fitr in July.
