The Bangladesh Bank (BB) ordered all banks in the country to display the account maintenance fee chart in their head office, branches, sub-branches and agent banking outlets' notice boards and websites.
The central bank issued a circular in this regard on Monday and sent it out to the chief executives of the banks.
In October 2019, the Bangladesh Bank provided the account maintenance fee chart to the banks, which is to be imposed on a half-yearly basis.
According to the chart, banks cannot charge account maintenance fee up to Tk10,000 for savings deposit accounts. If deposit's average outstanding amount exceed Tk10,000 and not more than Tk25,000, then banks can deduct a maximum Tk100 as maintenance fee.
Banks can charge a maximum Tk200 for deposits of over Tk25,000 to Tk2 lakh and Tk250 for deposit amounts ranging from Tk2 lakh to Tk10 lakh. And, Tk300 for deposits over Tk10 lakh.
The clients will have to pay Tk300 for current accounts.
