BB disburses Tk 2.05b to capital market refinancing scheme

Bangladesh Bank (BB) has disbursed Tk 2.05 billion to the capital market refinancing scheme to enhance liquidity support in the capital market through market operators, officials said. The central bank on Thursday disbursed the fund on receipt of a letter from the supervisory committee of the refinancing scheme. The fund came following the government’s announcement regarding extension of tenure of the revised refinancing scheme until December 2027 to help revamp the capital market which recently saw persistent downward trend. The fund will be disbursed among market operators including Investment Corporation of Bangladesh (ICB) with an interest rate of 4.0 per cent. Before receiving Tk 2.05 billion from the central bank, the capital market refinancing scheme approved applications of market operators which sought Tk 220 million from the scheme.
