Keeping in view that the day temperature during summer would be at its peak in the months of April and May, the State government has revised the schedule of functioning of government offices from April 1 to May 31 this year in all the six districts of Hyderabad-Karnatak region — Ballari, Kalaburagi, Bidar, Yadgir, Koppal and Raichur, and in Bagalkot and Vijayapura districts of Belagavi Revenue Division.
The changed time, however, would not apply to the offices of the Deputy Commissioner, the Assistant Commissioner, the Taluk Offices and the Naadakatcheris. They would continue to function between 10 a.m. and 5.30 p.m.
Even all officers of various other departments, drafted for the Lok Sabha election duty, have to work between 10 a.m. and 5.30 p.m. from April 1 to May 24.
From May 25 to May 31, they will have to work from 8 a.m. to 1.30 p.m.
In case government officers and employees of other departments, who would be working in the changed timing, are drafted for election duty, they should also work from 10 a.m. to 5.30 p.m., according to a circular issued by Deputy Commissioner Ramprasath Manohar.
