PETALING JAYA: Federal civil servants have been given an additional Hari Raya holiday on Friday.
However, the holiday on July 8 will only apply on the condition that Hari Raya falls on July 6.
It will not take effect should Hari Raya falls on July 5, said Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa.
“Members of the public who seek Federal services on that day are encouraged to visit the agencies and departments before the Hari Raya holidays,” he said in a statement on Thursday.
He also expressed his hope that Federal civil servants will be able to enjoy the additional day off celebrating with their families.
Although it was not mentioned in his statement, it is understood that additional holiday will not apply to state-level civil servants.
