Bank branches serving RMG factories to remain open on July 8 and 9
Banks have been asked to keep their branches that serve the readymade garment industry in Dhaka city, Ashulia, Tongi, Gazipur, Savar, Bhaluka, Narayanganj and Chattogram open for the full day on July 8 and 9.
In a notice today, the Bangladesh Bank said banks would have take measures to keep the branches open in order to allow garment factories to sell their export bills and clear the payments and bonuses of their workers and officials ahead of Eid-ul-Azha.
The clearing system of the central bank would remain open on the days. Banks, however, can't submit any cheques for clearing from the branches that are not located in the areas cited in the circular.
