BB to release new Taka100 note on March 7

DHAKA, Mar 5, 2019 (BSS) – Bangladesh Bank (BB) is going to release 100 percent cotton paper ‘Uv Curing Varnish’ Taka 100 note on March 7 aimed at strengthening the security features of the high value currency.

The measurement of the new note is 140 x 62 millimeter and the new note will be available at BB’s Motijheel branch on March 7, said a press release.

Later, the note will be available at all branches of the central bank, the release added.

In the new conventional note, the existing design and color of the Taka 100 note are 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.

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.
