Now they seem to have changed their mind, November 1 is the new date:
"The country’s clocks will be reversed by one hour on November 1. 
Officials of Federal Ministry for Interior told this to Geo News on 

And more importantly, it seems that these dates will be kept every year:

"It has now been decided that clocks will be wound forward by one hour 
on April 15 and reversed by an hour on November 1 every year without 
obtaining prior approval, the officials added."

We have confirmed this year's end date with both with the Ministry of
