Fitra, a charity donation by well-off Muslims at the end of Ramadan, has been fixed at minimum Tk 70 per person this year.
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, says a UNB report.
The minimum and maximum rates of Fitra have been set taking into account the market prices of flour, dates, and other relevant food items.
Fitra can be given in cash or kind.
