In an article on May 29, The Star reported that civil servants at the National Registration Department (NRD) have decided to work during weekends at the busy Maju Junction branch here.
This move was proposed by the staff themselves to demonstrate their appreciation for the recent salary increase. This seven-day service to serve the public better and improve the delivery system will start from June 16.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi announced the salary increase for civil servants and pensioners on May 21.
NRD's extended working hours during the weekends will be from 8am to 1pm, and if widely accepted by the public, the service will be extended to other state capitals.
NRD's Director-General, Datuk Mohd Abdul Halim Muhammd said, “If there is good response from the public for our services on weekends, we will gradually introduce this in other states,”
