Some bank branches remain open June 23, 24

Bangladesh Bank (BB) on Tuesday asked all scheduled banks to keep open their branches located in Dhaka city, Ashulia, Tongi, Gazipur, Savar, Valuka, Narayanganj and Chittagong, especially those connected with apparel factories, on June 23 and 24.

In a circular, BB instructed the banks to keep open the branches in those areas for half day (from 9.30am to 12am) on Friday and for full day (from 9.30 to 4pm) on Saturday to facilitate payment of salary, bonus and other allowance of readymade garment (RMG) workers before the Holy Eid-ul-Fitr and to keep pace with overseas trade.

It also asked banks to arrange adequate security for those branches.
