Govt reschedules public holiday for Shab-e-Barat to March 30

The government today rescheduled the public holiday for the upcoming Shab-e-Barat to March 30 instead of March 29 since the holiday for the religious event is determined based on the sighting of the new moon.

The Public Administration Ministry issued a notification in this regard today.

On March 14, the National Moon Sighting Committee decided to observe Shab-e-Barat on the night of March 29 as the moon of Shaban was not sighted in the country on that day.
