Bangladesh Bank is releasing new Tk 100 notes using paper entirely made of cotton.
The new notes will be issued on Thursday (Mar 7) from the central bank headquarters at Dhaka’s Motijheel and gradually will be available at its others offices in the country, said a statement.
In the new conventional note, the existing design and colour of the Taka 100 notes will remain unchanged. Varnish plaque has been added on both sides of the note. As a result, the note will be shinier and increase its stability.
The note will be less dirty than the existing one and anything cannot be written easily on the note. Besides, users of the note will feel a bit slippery, the release adds.
All the previous features of the Taka 100 note in the varnish currency will remain intact.
Along with the new printed notes, the existing Taka 100 notes will continue as valid banknotes.
