However, the country’s lenders will operate from 10am to 3pm, the central bank said in a notice issued on the day

The Bangladesh Bank on Sunday extended transaction hours for banks until 1:00pm instead of 12:30pm for Monday and Tuesday, until a stricter lockdown is enforced from Wednesday.

However, the country’s lenders will operate from 10am to 3pm, the central bank said in a notice issued on the day.

Earlier on April 4, the BB cut the transaction time for banks by three and a half hours for the weeklong lockdown aimed at preventing the increasing rate of Covid-19 infections.

The government has extended the ongoing lockdown for another three days, until April 14.

The central bank also said that other instructions issued on April 4 will remain unchanged.

Various payment and clearing systems introduced by the central bank should continue for all types of deposits and withdrawals, distribution of allowance under the various social programs of the government, remittance payments, and payment of utility bills, said the previous BB notice.

Bank branches, sub-branches, booths located in the sea, land and airports, and customs areas should be opened at all times by consulting with the local administration and customs authorities.

The central bank also asked the lenders to keep adequate cash at their branches and ATM booths to ensure services to their clients.
