Here's a comprehensive breakdown of the announced adjustments:

While the parking exemption spans from Monday, April 8, corresponding to 29 Ramadan, until either Thursday, April 11, or Friday, April 12, marked as 3 Shawwal, it's important to note that multi-storey parking facilities are excluded from this offer.
