The committee will be tasked with the job of spotting the new crescent moon which signals the arrival of Eid Al Fitr. People from across the world try to sight the moon after sunset (when they break the fast) on 29th Ramzan.
Muslims across India will celebrate this grand festival on 14 and 15 June, 2018.
The statement asked all and sundry to observe the day as such throughout the country.
Eid is expected to fall on Friday, but the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources announced on Monday that all governments and ministries would close from Thursday and will last until Shawwal 3.
