Star Business Desk

Bangladesh Bank yesterday directed all scheduled banks in 40 districts to keep their branches open on Saturday, a public holiday for banks.
The central bank issued the directive so the candidates for upazila parishad elections can pay election security money through treasury chalan, bank draft, pay order or postal order, the BB said in a statement.
Elections in 102 out of 487 upazilas will be held on February 19.
The nomination submission deadline is January 25 while the scrutiny of the nomination papers will take place on January 27, according to the election schedule.
