All the branches of scheduled banks remain open today, said a Bangladesh Bank (BB) circular. The central bank issued the circular yesterday directing all the scheduled banks to keep all their branches open on Friday.
The central bank took the decision at the interest of peoples to facilitate transaction, sources said.
Earlier, the central bank took such decision only for the branches located at the apparel industry areas of Dhaka metropolis, Ashulia, Tongi, Gazipur, Savar, Narayanganj and Chittagong.
The decision was taken on request of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) to facilitate wage payment of workers.
But it was later revised to have all scheduled banks open on Friday.
