UNB, Dhaka :

All shopping malls and shops will remain open till 10 pm instead of 8 pm from July 1 to 10 ahead of Eid-ul-Azha.

A notification was issued in this regard by the Labour and Employment Ministry on Wednesday.

On Sunday, State Minister for Labour and Employment Begum Monnujan Sufian said shops, shopping malls and markets across the country will close after 8 pm from June 20 as per Prime Minister’s instruction to save on electricity and energy.

The traders and the businesspeople demand that shops and markets be allowed to do business until 10 pm from July 1 to July 10 for the sake of business ahead of Eid-ul-Azha.

Monnujan said they would send this proposal in the form of summary to the Prime Minister's Office.

On June 16, a letter signed by the Director General of the Prime Minister's Office (Administration) Ahsan Kibria Siddiqui, said that the PM instructed the new timing for shops to save electricity amid rising energy prices worldwide.
