ISLAMABAD: The clocks across the country were advanced by one hour on Wednesday midnight. The federal cabinet had earlier approved moving the clocks one hour in wake of daylight saving to meet the ongoing electricity shortfall in the country.
A statement by the Ministry of Interior said the Pakistan Standard Time (PST) was advanced by one hour to make full use of daylight. It said the clocks would be reversed again by an hour on October 31. Last year, the government had turned the clocks ahead on June 1 to avail an extra hour of daylight for conserving energy to contain the power shortfall.
