This year’s minimum Fitra at Tk 70

Fitra, a charity donation by Muslims at the end of holy Ramadan, has been fixed at a minimum of Tk 70 per person this year. National Fitra Fixation Committee decided on the donation rates at a meeting on Wednesday (May 30), local media reports said.

The maximum rate of Fitra has been set at Tk 2,310 per person this year taking into account the market prices of flour, dates and other essential items.

Last year, the minimum Fitra rate was Tk 65 and maximum at Tk 1,980 per person.

According to Islamic tradition, Fitra is Wajib (required) of every well-off Muslim.
