Punjab forbids Iftar celebrations and business gifts throughout Ramadan

Government agencies are not permitted to conduct Iftar festivities, according to a statement from the Punjab Services and General Administration Department (S&GAD).

The government has advised against purchasing expensive presents for departmental delegations during Ramadan due to the economic crisis. The notification exempts foreign visitors and diplomats from these restrictions.

The declaration highlights the necessity for simplicity throughout the holy month and the government’s resolve to observe it subtly. Understanding Pakistan’s current economic situation is also essential in order to prevent having pricey Iftar parties that can put a strain on the nation’s finances.

Therefore, it has been requested that all government agencies abide by these rules and refrain from purchasing expensive gifts for local delegates. The administration recognises the need for a more modest and responsible Ramadan celebration that is in line with the nation’s financial situation.
