State Bank of Pakistan has announced holidays on the eve of Eid ul Adha 2021. In a circular State Bank inform the general public that State Bank and its all 16 field offices will remain close on July 20,21,22 Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
NCOC wanted that there must be 5 holidays on Eid ul Azha but Federal Govt squeezed these holidays to just 3.
All commercial banks branches, field offices and back offices will remain close on 21,22,23 July 2021.
This would really cause trouble for the employees of the banks and all the salaried persons because Eid Holidays are not sufficient and even the third day of Eid would be a working day.
People travel to their distant homes on Eid holidays and due to these few holidays, it has really become difficult for them to travel to their homes. Even if they take a leave on Monday 19 July 2021 then still they have to come back to the office on Friday, the 3rd day of Eid. If they get left of Friday then Eid holidays will be considered their leaves as well. So this is the situation employees are facing on Eid Holidays.
This is a big Eid and Govt must always consider this as a big event and must give holidays as per the event.
