The government will announce separate pay scale for the employees of Bangladesh Bank and four state-owned banks (SOBs) soon, Finance Minister AMA Muhith announced today.

“Share of the nationalised banks will also be offloaded in the market within the tenure of the present government,” the minister said while addressing the annual conference of Janata Bank at Hotel Sonargaon in the capital.

The government will increase private sector's participation in the state-run banks by the end of its tenure, Muhith said.

After receiving law ministry’s approval, the finance ministry is now working to issue the final notification on separate pay scale, the minister said.

On November 14, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina approved a draft on the separate pay scale of the bank employees.
