TK 1, TK 2 withdrawal decision disclosed
19 January 2015, Nirapad News : On Monday morning, Finance Minister AMA Muhith while addressing a programme at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University disclosed the decision that “Tk 1, Tk 2 will remain in the market”.
He also mentioned the reason behind changing the decision, “The notes, which are already in the market cannot be withdrawn forcibly. When people will find this unnecessary, its use will be decreased naturally.”
This is the decision which followed after goverment’s prior intention of wanting to withdraw the currency of Tk 1 and Tk 2 denominations from circulation as shared by Finance Minister AMA Muhith yesterday after a meeting on amendment of the Value Added Tax (VAT) law at his secretariat office.
