The government has received recommendations pertaining to amending office hours of the private and state sector.

According to the recommendations, the committee has proposed 9am to 4:45pm working hours for the state sector and 9:45am to 6:45pm work hours for the private sector.

Minister of Transport Services Management Mahinda Amaraweera appointed a committee to table recommendations to amend office hours recently.

The report was handed over to Minister Amaraweera by the Secretary of the Transport Ministry Gamini Seneviratne this morning.

The proposition of amending work hours was put forward in order to maintain social distancing implemented owing to the coronavirus, curtail traffic congestion and increasing efficiency of both the state and private sectors.

The report will also be handed over to Ministry of Public Administration, while the decision on implementing the recommendations will be reached by the Ministry.
