Bangladesh Bank increased the price of international currency dollar by 1 taka. It is being sold to state-owned banks at the rate of Tk 102 from Wednesday (March 1).
An official of the relevant department of the central bank, who did not wish to be named, confirmed this information and said that every dollar was being sold at Tk 101 since February 1. This time Tk 1 has been increased.
On this day, Bangladesh Bank sold 56 million dollars from the reserve. With this, a total of 10.04 billion dollars was sold from foreign currency reserves in the current financial year.
But not all banks are getting dollars at this rate. The central bank is selling it only to some state-owned banks. This step has been taken to meet the necessary import expenditure of the government.
