Bangladesh Bank on Sunday asked all banks to provide banking services to the flood-affected areas from nearby branches and sub-branches, BB said in a circular.
The central bank also instructed the banks to keep operations off at the branches and sub-branches that have been hit hard by the floods and provide services from nearby branches.
BB said it made the decision as sudden floods in Sylhet, Sunamganj, Rangpur and Kurigram have forced many people to take shelter away from their homes.
Almost all areas of Sylhet and Sunamganj districts have gone under water and people are suffering badly for want of drinking water and food.
