Bangladesh Bank (BB) will release new Taka 1000 note on Thursday aiming at strengthening the security features of the high-value currency.
The measurement of the new note is 160 x 70 millimetre and the new note will be available at BB’s Motijheel branch on May 23, said a press release.
Later, the note will be available at all branches of the central bank across the country, the release said.
In the new note, the existing design and colour of the Taka 1000 note are unchanged but the crocodile pattern rolling star thread has been added in the new note.
The new security yarn is better than the security yarn of the existing note and modern technology has been used in the new note which will play an effective role in counteracting the counterfeit.
