BB to release new Tk 20 note today
Bangladesh Bank (BB) will release new notes of Tk 20 denomination from today.
The new Tk 20-note imprinted with Banga-bandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman will be released today from Bangladesh Bank’s Motijheel central office, said a press release.
Later, the note will be available in all other branches of the Bangladesh Bank and the scheduled banks.
The new note is being released to evade confusion between the current Tk 20 and Tk 500 notes as there are some similarities in colour and sizes among the two different notes.
With the portrait of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on one side the new Tk 20-note will be imprinted with a drawing of Shatgambuz Masjid of Bagerhat on the other side.
