All the commercial banks will keep their branches open on Tuesday (Aug 6) in the industrial areas in Dhaka, Chittagong and Khulna so that smooth payments for workers through bank transactions can be ensured.
Earlier, on July 31, Bangladesh Bank issued a directive to the chief executives of the banks in this reared.
“The directive remains unchanged,” BB general mamanger AFM Asaduzzaman told UNB.
The arrangement has been made following requests from Labour and Employment Ministry and Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA).
Under the directive, the bank branches located in Dhaka city, Savar, Ashulia, Gazipur, Narayanganj, Khulna and Chittagong will remain open on the day (Aug 6).
The central bank also urged the banks concerned to ensure adequate security for the branches.
