Will State Bank of Pakistan issue new currency notes for Eid 2024?

ISLAMABAD – It’s common practice for State Bank to issue new currency notes in Pakistan on occasions like Eidul Fitr. The new currency notes are issued to facilitate the public in exchanging old notes with new ones, for Eidi to young ones during festivities.

Sources familiar with the development revealed that the central bank will not issue new currency notes for public this year like the previous two Eids.

The State Bank’s decision not to issue new currency notes will likely to disappoint people who were visiting commercial banks to obtain them.
