Bangladesh Bank has extended 10 am-2 pm banking hour until May 23 following the extension of lockdown period for another week.

The central bank took the decision on Sunday after the government extended the nationwide restrictions on public movement until May 23 to curb the second wave of the corona virus infections.

Clients can be able to enjoy banking services from 10am to 2pm during the limited banking hours, according to a notice of Bangladesh Bank.

Besides, the branches will remain open until 3:30 pm to complete their regular banking procedures.

In the notice, the central bank, however, has not given any indication on the alternate-day duty rosters for employees.

Banks have been following rosters for their employees since April 14 as per the instructions of the central bank and the government.
