Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN)- The Bangladesh Bank (BB) has said all notes and coins, both old and new, including torn notes, would be exchanged and supplied by over 8000 branches of 47 scheduled banks in the country instead of the central bank counter from May 2 this year. 
“The decision has been taken to help people get the services from the nearby bank branches and ensure overall security of the key-point installation (KPI),” a central bank press statement said on Tuesday.
In 1996, the central bank of Bangladesh has been included in the KPI list to ensure its security.
