The government has announced office timing for the upcoming holy month of Ramadan -- from 9:00am to 3:30pm -- for all government, semi-government, autonomous and semi-autonomous institutions.

The decision was taken at the weekly cabinet meeting held at PMO today with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the chair.
