Hartal to affect banking hours


Several public and private banks across the country will remain closed today (06), after the Ceylon Bank Employees’ Union announced their decision to join today’s hartal.

Issuing notices to the public, several leading public banks, including Commercial Bank, Hatton National Bank and Seylan Bank noted that business hours would be restricted from 09:00 am to 11:00 am.

While certain banks offered a list of the branches that will be closed for business (via their official websites), customers have been encouraged to use their digital/smart banking channels.
