Bangladesh Bank today instructed the country's lenders to continue their limited banking operation until May 23.
The central bank took the decision after the government extended the nationwide restrictions on public movement until May 23 to curb the second wave of the Covid-19 infections.
Clients can be able to enjoy banking services from 10am to 2pm during the limited banking hours, according to a notice of Bangladesh Bank.
Besides, the branches will remain open until 3:30 pm to complete their regular procedures.
In the notice, the central bank, however, has not given any indication on the alternate-day duty rosters for employees.
Banks have been following the rostering system for their employees since April 14 as per the instructions of the central bank and the government.
The government enforced lockdown-like controls from April 5 after the Covid-19 infections rate and death tolls began rising alarmingly.
As the situation worsened, it went for a strict countrywide lockdown from April 14.
