Bangladesh Bank has said that the deposits of common people in banks are totally safe.
Central bank's spokesman GM Abul Kalam Azad said this on Sunday in response to propaganda on various social media stating that the depositors were withdrawing their deposits from the banks.
"This is not correct and is being made out of conspiracy," he said following a meeting between Bangladesh Bank Governor Abdur Rouf Talukder and visiting World Bank Vice President for the South Asia Region Martin Raiser in Dhaka on Sunday.
Urging the countrymen to keep their utmost trust and confidence in the country's banking system, the Bangladesh Bank asserted that the banking system of Bangladesh has been in a very solid condition while there is no liquidity crisis.
He also mentioned that no bank was closed down in the country since independence and hopefully no bank will be closed in future also.
GM Abul Kalam Azad said steps will be taken if any bank fails to pay depositors their money. The customers can make complain calling at 16236 number. "We will take necessary measures after receiving the complains," he said.
