King Salman issued on Wednesday a royal order to restore all allowances, bonuses and financial benefits to the civil workers with retrospective effect.

The civil employees whose benefits have been canceled, modified or stopped will receive a backlog of payments, reported the Saudi Press Agency.

The orders issued are meant to ease the life of Saudi citizens and provide a decent life for them, the news agency said.

King Salman also extended the holiday of Eid al-Fitr to all employees of the government sector to begin 10 days earlier than the actual Eid which will celebrated on Sunday.
