PUTRAJAYA: More than 800,000 civil servants will enjoy a longer Chinese New Year holiday break this year which starts on Jan 22 as Jan 24, which falls on the fourth Saturday of the month, has been declared a rest day. 

This means that instead of the normal two days of uninterrupted holiday, civil servants will enjoy a stretch of four days. 

The rest day on Jan 24 will be replaced by the first Saturday of February which falls on Feb 7. 

According to a Public Services Department circular, the Government has decided to amend the date of the rest days to enable those celebrating Chinese New Year to enjoy a longer holiday.
