Government Would Shorten Working Days To Conserve Fuel
Government Would Shorten Working Days To Conserve Fuel Because of the rising cost of fuel worldwide and the recent peak in the dollar value, the government is considering shortening the number of working days to minimize fuel use and associated costs.
According to reports from Dawn, the federal government is looking to save 2.7 billion dollars yearly through the practice of reducing the number of working days. Compared to the previous fiscal year, Pakistan’s total oil imports have seen a 96% increase since the beginning of this one. According to the experts’ opinions, this rise results from greater consumption of fuel.
According to several sources, the State Bank of Pakistan has developed three distinct strategies to save between 1.5 and 2.7 billion dollars.
According to the estimations, the number of petroleum products utilized during a single working day was 640 million dollars. We will be able to avoid having to import as much oil if we cut back on the number of working days.
The first plan calls for a weekly schedule of 4 working days and three days off per week. The second plan calls for four regular workdays, two days off for holidays, and one day off for lockdown. The third possibility calls for four regular workdays, one day off for a holiday, and two days when the facility is closed.
There is no formal notification that there would be four working days in a week, nor is there any notification that there will be three holidays in a week; instead, this is merely the thinking of government members.
While on the other hand, Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif is considering extending the number of working days from five to six. However, recent power outages and rising fuel use have caused him to reconsider his decision.
