    I have seen 'office hours', 'office opening hours' or 'office working hours' but not 'office timing'.

    timing - control of the time when an action or an event occurs.
    Timing, among other factors, is important for a company to launch a new product in the market.

    In India 'Office timimgs' is quite common.
    After seeing your post,I searched 'Office timings'-Google.The result:
    British Council. Poland.
    Office timings.
    Mon-Fri:8-4:30.

    In most of the world you will not see/hear "office timings" you will rather see/hear "office hours", but it is true that in India "office timings" is often used. Personally, "timings" seems wrong to me, but then English is growing and changing rapidly, particularly in India and China.

    I'm sorry, rj, but "office timings" is not Modern English.

    Someone may have to notify the British Council of this. After all, they do offer IELTS testing, right?

    I just searched "office timings" on google and I was very surprised to come up with 14,500 results, a lot of them from India, many of these were official government sites.
