Banking hours to remain 10am to 3pm till June 16
Bangladesh Bank has instructed banks to keep their doors open for customers from 10:00am to 3:00pm until June 16.
The banking regulator took the decision yesterday as the government has extended the ongoing nationwide restrictions on public movement to curb the spread of Covid-19.
The bank branches will remain open until 4:30 pm to complete their regular procedures, according to a central bank notice.
Banks have been following the rostering system for their employees since April 14 as instructed by the government.
The government enforced lockdown-like measures on April 5 after the Covid-19 infection rate began an alarming rise.
As the situation worsened, it went for a strict countrywide lockdown from April 14.
