The transaction timing in banks for customers has been extended by one hour from Thursday amid the lockdown to halt the sharp rise of COVID-19 in the country.
In a circular issued on Wednesday, Bangladesh Bank (BB) asked banks to carry out transactions from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm with effect from Thursday (July 8) instead of the existing 10:00 am to 1:30 pm. However, the bank authorities are allowed to conduct internal official activities until 4:00 pm instead of the previously set time of 3:30 pm.
The new time will continue until July 14, the circular added.
Besides, the lenders will enjoy holiday on July 11.
