Banks have been asked to continue operation on April 29 and 30 to facilitate payment of garment workers' salary, Eid bonus, allowances and export-import activities.

Bangladesh Bank (BB) gave the directive to the scheduled banks through a circular on Monday.

BB has asked banks to continue operation before Eid-ul-Fitr in the industrial areas in Dhaka metropolitan area, Ashulia, Tongi, Gazipur, Savar, Bhaluka, Narayanganj and Chittagong  ensuring adequate security.

The Department off-site Supervision of Bangladesh Bank issued the circular and sent it to the top executives of the banks to take necessary action.
