NATIONAL | MAY 03, 2020:

With false information storming various social media platforms, there's a misconception that the central government supposedly increasing the office work hours for its employees to 10 hours daily.

Press Information Bureau (PIB) clarified that these reports are fake and that the central government has not made any such decision, contrary to claims floating on widely-circulated messages on WhatsApp and other social media platforms.

Not only are these claims fake, but also no such proposal to increase work hours for government employees from 9 AM till 7 PM in the office is even under consideration on part of the central government, PIB Fact Check clarified.
