Cash transactions remain of the utmost importance during this particular holiday
For Bangladesh, the two Eids continue to be the busiest times of the year, with millions of people celebrating each event at different parts of the country.
This celebration comes in the form of most people around Bangladesh visiting their hometowns.
With Eid-ul-Azha a week away, this means that the busy time has arrived, along with the annual onrush of people making travel preparations and dealing with the expenses that entail this major holiday, primarily the purchase of cattle for sacrificing.
This also means that there are millions if not billions of transactions being carried out every day leading up to the Eid, and, in this regard, we appreciate Bangladesh Bank’s request to local banks to ensure that there is enough cash in ATMs during this time of the year, and that financial transactions run smoothly.
Cash transactions remain of the utmost importance during this particular holiday, as millions of people will also be purchasing cattle for the sacrifice that is to be carried out on the day of celebration.
As such, ensuring that people receive the support required to celebrate this upcoming Eid fully, without any sort of hassle, is of the utmost importance, at least when it comes to the issue of money.
This is one step amongst many that the government can take to make Eid celebrations smooth sailing for the citizens of this country.
