The banking hours have been extended from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm from May 31 (Monday) to June 6 for facilitating the financial transaction of the clients during the lockdown.
Bangladesh Bank (BB) issued a circular in this regard on Sunday.
“Banks will remain open from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm while the transaction will be made between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm,” said the circular.
Until Sunday, banks allowed customers to do banking from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm. Before the coronavirus pandemic, branches were open to customers from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Earlier on April 13, the central bank in a circular said bank headquarters, authorized dealer branches and district-level head offices will remain open during the movement restrictions.
Also, one branch (if the authorized dealer branch is not open) will remain open every two kilometres in city corporation areas. At the Upazila level, a single branch of a bank will remain open on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday.
Apart from this, branches, sub-branches, and bank booths in the vicinity of sea, land, and airports will remain open. Port authorities and local administration are to take appropriate measures in enforcing health safety guidelines.
