Bangladesh Bank has brushed aside as simply a rumour the news that the Tk 1,000 bank notes will be scrapped.

The central bank on Wednesday said that the news of scrapping of old Tk 1000 red notes was rumour.

In this regard, Bangladesh Bank spokesperson and executive director Sirajul Islam said that what has been spread on Facebook has no basis. Bangladesh Bank has not issued any such directive. He advised the common people not to pay heed to this rumour. 

Earlier, a rumour has been spread on Facebook that this note will not work after May 30. Several media outlets have reported such news. However, Bangladesh Bank says this news is fake.
