Banks Will Remain Closed for the First 10 Days of July

As the month of Ramzan is winding down and Eid-ul-Fitr is approaching, banks in Pakistan have announced their schedule for Eid vacations.

In light of this, users of Pakistani banks need to be informed about the schedule of bank holidays so that they don’t face unnecessary hurdles in banking.

Details About Bank Holidays in July

In July, all banks will only open for one day in between 2nd to 10th July. This means that if you will submit a cheque on the 30th of June, it will not be processed and cleared until the 11th of July.

Here is the complete schedule for bank holidays:

  • On 1st July: The banks will remain closed owing to the yearly six month audit.
  • On 2nd and 3rd July: banks will remain closed on account of weekend holidays.
  • On 4th July: Banks will remain open on Monday.
  • From 5th-8th July: Eid holidays will start and banks will not be open as well.
  • On 9th and 10th of July: banks will remain closed owing to the weekend.

Customers of Pakistani banks are therefore expected to conclude their banking-related business before the start of July 2016.

So to avoid any inconvenience in your bank transactions, we suggest you should approach the banks as soon as possible for your transactions.

Update: SBP has Directed Banks to Remain Open on Sat 2nd and 9th July

    Shame on you for wrong headline,

      • Technocrz!

        They should stop acting like news channels, they are always copying news from US blogs and when they try to comeup with their own news this is what they do.

  • M Waseem Akhtar

    Banks will remain open on Monday (4th July) & Saturday (9th July – Saturday open branches only). Further ATMs will keep working and State Bank of Pakistan has strict orders to banks to keep ATMs in working condition (frequent cash dispensing).

    Please avoid spreading wrong news.

    Pathetic… Wrong Title

  • Abid Hussain

    The title is wrong and spreading sensation , the author should have some shame for proving wrong information checks lodged on 30th will be cleared on 4th and banks and open on 9th and holidays are not yet officials

    This blog was good but now in recent past promoting cheezmall and posting fake info after getting paid from sponsors

    it has lost its credibility

  • abu absar

    Does having a different title alter the fact that banks will be closed for 9 days and ATMs will run dry due to salary and regular withdrawls?

  • Umair

    • Technocrz!
