After five days of Eid and Pahela Baisakh vacation, offices, courts, banks and stock markets will reopen on Monday.

The people are returning to the capital after celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr, the biggest religious festival of the Muslim community.

On the occasion of Eid, April 10, 11, and 12 (Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday) were public holidays. After Eid, there was weekly holiday on Saturday, April 13, and Bengali New Year holiday on Sunday (April 14). As a result, employees are enjoying holidays from 10th to 14th April.

After five consecutive holidays, all will join work on Monday.

However, many of the government and private sector workers who went outside Dhaka for Eid have taken optional leave. As a result, it will take a few more days to start the proceedings in full swing in the offices, courts, banks, and stock markets.

Besides, schools and colleges will also open next week. Then the capital will return to normal.

But the journalists and employees working in the newspaper industries have enjoyed six-day Eid vacation for the first time as the Newspapers Owners Association of Bangladesh (NOAB) declared six day holiday since April 9.
