The federal government of Pakistan has announced a public holiday on account of Quaid-e-Azam Day on December 25, as well as instructing all banks and financial institutions to remain closed on Friday, December 25, 2020.
The aforementioned announcement was followed by the State Bank of Pakistan releasing the BPRD Circular Letter No. 50 of 2020 which states that "The State Bank of Pakistan will remain closed on December 25, 2020 (Friday) being public holiday on the occasions of Quaid-e-Azam Day and Christmas, as declared by the Government of Pakistan.".
Both announcements are in line with the list of 2020 public holidays in Pakistan, as announced in the "expected dates for public and optional holidays for the calendar year 2020" published by the Government of Pakistan, late last year (2019-12-06).
