When asked about State Minister for Finance MA Mannan's comment that the excise duty would be lowered, Muhith said that "the state minister is not an irresponsible person" and that "he spoke with authority and knowledge of the matter." Finance Minister Muhith further said: “Excise duties on bank deposits have been around for an eternity, but stakeholders have never said anything about it. It is only now that they have raised their voices, after we announced that we would increase the excise duty on bank deposits over Tk1 lakh.”
