Members of the emergency services, including fire service, ambulance, telephone, gas, electricity and water supply, will remain out of the purview of curfew, a home ministry press release said last night.
It said all medicine shops could remain open during the curfew.
Officials and employees of the Bangabhaban, Chief Adviser's Office, Bangladesh Secretariat and other government, semi-government and autonomous institutions will be able to use their official identity cards/ entry passes as curfew passes, the release said.
In case of necessity, other people can collect curfew passes from the metropolitan police commissioner's office concerned.
If curfew passes cannot be collected for any reason, passports/air tickets/ID cards can be used as curfew passes for the time being, the release added.
