LAHORE: The Punjab government has announced nine-day holiday for Daanish schools on the occasion of Eid ul Fitr, beginning from April 6. 

In a notification issued on Saturday, the provincial authorities said the Daanish Schools in the province will remain closed from April 6 to April April 14.  

Traditionally, Eid holidays commence a day earlier than the anticipated date to allow individuals ample time for preparations and to partake in the joyous festivities.

With the government reportedly contemplating a four-day holiday starting from April 9 (Tuesday) to April 12 (Friday), coupled with the usual weekend holidays on Saturday and Sunday observed by both government and select private offices, the total holiday period is expected to span six days, according to state-run APP.

However, the final decision regarding the holiday schedule remains contingent upon consultations with the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) and other pertinent authorities.
