Banks shut Dec 28-31

All banks will remain closed on the last four days of the year because of weekend, general holiday for election and bank holiday.

This year's last working day for banks and non-bank financial institutions will be December 27, according to a Bangladesh Bank notice issued Wednesday.

Banking operations will remain closed on December 28-29 as a regular weekend. The government announced a general holiday on December 30 for the 11th parliamentary election and December 31 will be a bank holiday.

However, clients can use ATM booths and alternate banking channels such as mobile financial services during this time. Banking operations will resume as usual from the first working day next year.

Banks say cash withdrawals have increased ahead of the election and yearend.
