The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) has announced that the State Bank of Pakistan and the commercial banks of Pakistan would observe their annual Eid-ul-Fitr bank holidays from July 5-8, 2016, meaning that, in conjunction with the subsequent weekend, banks in Pakistan will remain closed from July 5-10, 2016.
As Monday, July 4, 2016, will be the only day when Pakistani banks would normally open in the period of July 1-10, 2016, since July 1st is already a bank holiday in Pakistan (2016-06-29), the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) has called on banks to keep open all branches on the first two Saturdays of July 2016.
