Over $45.54cr remittances received in 5 days

Bangladesh received inward remittances worth over $45.54 crore in the first five days of April, according to the Bangladesh Bank data.

On average, more than $9.10 crore was sent to the country ahead of Eid-ul-Fitr, the biggest religious festival of Muslims. 

This year Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated in the country on 10 or 11 April. Expatriates usually send money in higher amounts to their families, particularly before Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Azha.

The country received $1.99 billion in remittances in March, registering a 1.23% year-on-year decrease, though the inflow generally marks a rise ahead of Eid.
