Bangladesh Bank has directed all banks not to take any fees in the form of pay order or bank draft from job applicants.
It has been noticed that some banks have been taking fees from the applicants despite previous requests against taking any sort of fees, read a circular by the central bank which was sent to all the banks today.
The central bank said it is very difficult for an unemployed youth to pay fees along with his job applications.
A high official of BB said the central bank has now decided to ban the fees. He said the central bank will take punitive measures if it receives any complaint of taking bank fees.
