Bangladesh Bank today said banks will continue their existing limited-hour transactions from 10am to 3pm on working days until June 16.
The central bank today issued a circular for all banks in compliance with the Cabinet Division's latest directives on the countrywide restrictions to contain the coronavirus infection.
However, the branches will remain open until 4:30 pm to complete their regular procedures.
The central bank took the decision despite the government extended the nationwide restrictions on public movement until June 16 to curb Covid-19 infections.
Banks have been following the rostering system for their employees since April 14 as per the instructions of the banking regulator and the government.
