As a result, commercial banks are in trouble. They have to sell the expatriate income at a lower price even if they buy it at a higher price. Due to which the supply of funds is decreasing.
Now Bangladesh Foreign Exchange Dealers Association (BAFEDA) and Association of Bankers, Bangladesh (ABB) set the dollar price. According to their instructions, the maximum dollar rate of remittance is 110 taka 50 paisa. Along with this, the government and banks are giving two and a half percent incentives.
