According to the Nepal Bankers Association (NBA), all the 27 commercial banks in the country have decided to close their branches for five days on the occasion of the famous Dashain festival.
“All branches of commercial banks will remain closed from October 23 to 27,” informed NBA Executive Officer Anil Sharma.
He advised the customers to opt for online banking as the banks are promoting digital services.
Earlier, some branches used to remain open even during the festival season. However, this year, the NBA has decided to close all the branches in view of the coronavirus pandemic.
This year, the Dashain festival, also known as Bijaya Dashami, is falling on October 26. It is the most auspicious festival in Nepal. The festival marks the victory of Goddess Durga over the Demon Mahishasura.
