Only bundles of Tk1,000 notes can be stapled, added the central bank

Bangladesh Bank (BB) has issued a clean note circulation policy, with immediate effect, directing all bank officials to refrain from putting seals or staples on currency bundles or writing on bank notes.

The central bank issued the directive on Monday addressing all managing directors and CEOs of all commercial banks.

The circular was signed by Md Sultan Masud Ahmed, general manager of BB’s Currency Management Department.

The directive also mentioned that it has become a habit for bank officials to write on bank notes, put seals on them and staple the note bundle, which must not be practiced further.

It also said, only bundles of Tk1,000 notes can be stapled.
