Imphal, March 30: The RBI has decided that its offices and all designated branches of agency banks conducting government banking will keep their counters open up to 8.00 p.m. tomorrow for greater convenience to taxpayers. Electronic transactions can be also done till midnight tomorrow.
In order to facilitate Government receipts and payments, necessary arrangements have been made to conduct special clearing operations across the country. Centralised payment systems, such as the RTGS and NEFT, will also be operational with the extended business hours.
The RBI adds that Monday has been declared as a holiday to enable banks to close their yearly accounts, but RBI offices will work on that date. However, centralised payment systems, such as RTGS and NEFT, will not be operational.
Meanwhile, state government had cancelled its earlier order which announced full time working hour  for government employees on Good Friday. Late at evening yesterday , another order issued by the government said that only employees in the Finance section and those related to bank will have to work full working hours while the rest of the employees will enjoy the holiday. The order comes after the Chief Minister in his facebook wrote for reconsideration of the notification as he understood the sentiments of the Christian people. There were series of protest against the government order after Imphal Times published it in its yesterday’s issue
