Government announces Eid holidays

A statement released by the Ministry of Interior, on behalf of the federal government, states that Eid-ul-Fitr has been declared a five-day holiday. From Friday 21st April to Tuesday 25th April, the government will observe a holiday that comes after the Cabinet Division approved the request following its recommendation. The interior ministry will also issue a formal notification in this regard.In April, the Ruet-e-Hilal Research Council (RHRC) predicted that Eid-ul-Fitr would have minimal chances of falling on 21 April, due to the new crescent being born on 20 April at 9:13 AM with an age of fewer than 10 hours.

Apparently, Mufti Khalid Ijaz believes that it is likely that Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated on 22 April following the completion of thirty days of fasting during the holy month of Ramadan. There is a high probability that the Shawwal moon will not be sighted on the evening of the 21st of April, he said.

No New Currency Notes for Eid-ul-Fitr

On Thursday, the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) announced that it will not be issuing new notes for Eid-ul-Fitr through SMS services or through banks for the holiday season.

In the year 2020, the country was severely affected by the outbreak of COVID-19, which had a devastating effect on the country. As a result, the policy regarding the issuing of new notes was revised. As a consequence of the pandemic, the SBP stopped providing new notes, which were previously handed out by SMS or banks, to citizens.
