Remittance inflow increases by 9.31pc in 7 months

BSS, Dhaka

Expatriate Bangladeshis sent US$ 9,086.17 million remittances during the first seven months of the current fiscal 2018-19, which is apparently 9.31 per cent higher than the same period of the preceding year, according to a Bangladesh Bank (BB) data.

The country received $8,312.02 million remittances during July to January in 2017-18 financial year, the data added.

“The flow of remittances into the country shows upward trend in the current fiscal 2018-19 as the BB has taken measures to streamline the legal channel for encouraging Non Resident Bangladeshis (NRBs) to send money to the country,” BB Chief Spokesperson M Serajul Islam told the news agency.

He said the recent flow of remittance indicates that it is gradually increasing and this trend is likely to continue in the upcoming months. According to the BB data, the country received $1,590.82 million in January, $1,206.91 million in December, $1,180.44 million in November, $1,239.11 million in October, $1,139.66 million in September, $1,411.05 million in August and $1,318.18 million in July of the fiscal 2018-19.

But in 2017-18, the country got $1,379.79 million in January, $1,163.82 million in December, $1,214.75 million in November, $1,162.77 million in October, $856.87 million in September, $1,418.58 million in August, $1,115.57 million in July.

In January this fiscal, six state-owned commercial banks — Agrani, Janata, Rupali, Sonali, Basic and BDBL — received $346.35 million while one state- owned specialised bank- Bangladesh Krishi Bank- received $17.40 million. Of the state-owned banks, Agrani Bank received $139.62 million, Janata Bank $72.39 million, Rupali Bank $18.92 million, Sonali Bank $115.25 million and Basic Bank received $0.17 million.
