The cost of bank deposit up to 10 lakh taka has been reduced

Bangladesh Bank has given benefits to small depositors this time as coronavirus infection continues to increase. Their account maintenance fees have been halved. As a result, banks will be able to collect fees once a year from depositors who have an average deposit of up to 10 taka lakh. As a result, the maximum fee for a deposit of  2 taka lakh to 10 taka lakh will be Tk 250. This facility will be applicable for the current year only.

Bangladesh Bank Deputy Governor Abu Farah. In the first light, Nasser said, 'Borrowers have been given many opportunities. This time the depositors were given a chance. As a result, small depositors will turn to banks and deposits will also increase.

The Bangladesh Bank said in a statement that small depositors are being encouraged to provide financial incentives and increase deposits in view of the economic situation caused by the coronavirus infection. For this, banks are being instructed to collect account maintenance charges instead of twice a year against savings accounts with an average deposit status of up to 10 taka lakh.
