    Its a very Holy Month ,In the evening the employes have to face the heat and sun light on their way back to home. We wake up at 02 at night and really feel tired by 03 PM , so we request the Govt to please review timings from 08 Am to 02 Pm has been the previous practice . After having rest from 03 to 05 Pm we feel fresh for Namaz Travayi at night. We look towards a better respons.
