State bank not to issue new notes this Eid too
KARACHI: The State Bank of Pakistan has decided not to issue new notes on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr 2021.
According to the SBP, new notes will not be issued to the public on Eid-ul-Fitr in a bid to stem the spread of Coronavirus epidemic.
It should be noted that even last year new notes were not issued viewing the covid-19 situation.
It has become a tradition for the SBP to issue fresh currency notes on Eid which are given to children as Eidi by their elders.
