Dhaka, May 16 (UNB) – This year’s minimum Fitra has been fixed at Tk 70 per person.
The maximum Fitra has been set at Tk 1,980, said Mohammad Nizam Udin, assistant director of Islamic Foundation.
The Islamic Foundation fixed the amount on Thursday at a meeting chaired by Hafez Maulana Mohammad Mizanur Rahman, senior Pesh Imam of Baitul Mukarram National Mosque and president of the National Fitra Fixing Committee.
The amount has been fixed considering the market prices of flour, dates and other essential items.
Fitra is paid to the poor before the Eid Jamaat.
