But Bangladesh Bank will not issue any new notification in this regard

All the banks and stock exchanges in the country will remain open today, as they estimate Eid-ul-Fitr will be on Thursday.

But Bangladesh Bank will not issue any new notification in this regard, sources said.

Public holidays usually start from the 29th day of Ramadan, which falls on Wednesday this year.

But this time the government has kept its offices open, which means that banks and bourses will also have to remain open.

The central bank said that the officials and employees of banks must stay at their respective workstations during the Eid holidays.

The banks are now transacting from 10:00am to 2:00pm. Trading in the stock market is going on from 10:00am to 1.30pm.
