At present, banks carry out transactions until 3:30pm and remain open until 4:30pm against the normal transaction period of 10 am to 4pm.

The circular said the government has imposed different restrictions considering the current situation of the coronavirus pandemic.

During this period, the head offices of banks will remain open while state-owned banks will keep open one branch at the district level and one branch at the upazila level. Private banks will keep open one branch at the district level and maximum two branches outside the district level with limited manpower.

They have to ensure operation of ATM booths to facilitate transactions through cards by supplying adequate cash in the machines while the evening banking and weekly holiday banking activities will remain suspended until further order, said a notice issued earlier on April 13.
