Offices, including banks and financial institutions, reopened on Sunday (May 16) as the three-day public holiday on the occasion of the holy Eid-ul-Fitr ended.
But presence of the officials and employees was seen comparatively lower in city’s secretariat and Motijheel bank streets. The first working day was spent amid exchange of Eid greetings at government offices, including the Secretariat.
On the other hand, head offices of bank and insurance in city’s Motijheel area opened with a lower presence.
However, presence of clients was lower in the banks.
According to the bank officials, full-swing office activities may start next week.
The Eid-ul-Fitr, one of the biggest religious festivals of Muslims, was celebrated in the country with religious fervour and zeal on Friday, maintaining health guidelines issued by the government in a bid to contain the spread of deadly coronavirus.
