Initiative taken to introduce treasury activities in all banks
The government has taken an initiative to launch treasury activities in all banks from October, sources said.
This will save valuable time of customers as well as reduce sufferings.
At present, treasury services are being provided from six banks. These banks are Sonali Bank, Dhaka Bank, Bank Asia, Premier Bank, One Bank and Trust Bank. If there is no branch of these banks in any area, then people have to go to another area to deposit fees.
According to sources in the finance ministry, the government is going to introduce treasury activities in all commercial banks of the country to ensure some services in the banking sector. Fees can be deposited in the government treasury through treasury invoices, government invoices, bank drafts and pay orders from any branch of any bank. For this, the concerned bank will get commission at a fixed rate.
According to sources, various types of treasury and other invoices are deposited in the government treasury through Bangladesh Bank and Sonali Bank. However, the customers face various types of harassment. In this situation, the government has taken the initiative to launch treasury activities in all government and private commercial banks of the country. If this initiative is implemented, government transactions will be conducted smoothly. At the same time, the time and cost of customers in submitting invoices will be reduced and the quality of service of the bank will be further improved.
