Although the NCTB has deposited the entire amount of Tk 200 crore, the National University has deposited only Tk 400 crore out of Tk 1,000 crore in the current financial year. The university authorities have also requested not to take the remaining Rs 600 crore. In this regard, the Vice Chancellor of the National University Professor Harun-ur-Rashid told reporters, “We were asked to pay a total of Tk 1,000 crore in five installments.” But so far we have deposited Rs 400 crore in two installments. During Corona we have taken many programs for students. Digital studio is being done. Expenditure has increased due to these reasons. Moreover, the university has to expand. So we requested not to pay the rest. I have asked the government to reconsider this matter.
The government is depositing lazy money in the state treasury from the funds of various autonomous organizations. This money is being collected to meet the state expenditure from the 2019-20 financial year. According to the Finance Department, the autonomous agencies have so far deposited a total of Tk 23,547 crore in the state treasury.
According to government estimates, in the fiscal year 2019-20, a total of Tk 2,12,100 crore was deposited in various banks by 8 autonomous bodies of the country, including autonomous, semi-autonomous, statutory government authorities and public non-financial corporations. At that time the government enacted a law to take this money to the state treasury.
According to the finance ministry, after the enactment of the law, the government received a total of Tk 18,046 crore from eight companies in the last financial year (2019-20). The government has set a target of depositing at least Tk 15,600 crore in the state treasury in the current financial year as well. Of this, Tk 6,500 crore has been deposited so far. In all, the autonomous organizations have so far deposited Tk 23,547 crore of the surplus in the state treasury.
In this regard, the people involved in the finance department say that till now many companies had left lazy money in the bank. The amount of money has increased day by day by adding interest. Some companies have also given additional bonuses to the officials from this money. The law has been very timely in the current situation. Tk 23,000 crore from the funds of autonomous organizations has come in handy during the difficult times of the Kavid-19 infection.
Asked about this, a senior official of the finance department said that a target of Tk 15,600 crore has been set from this sector in the current financial year. Of this, Tk 6,500 crore has been deposited in the government treasury so far. More will come during the rest of the fiscal year. Besides, the government received Tk 18,046 crore from eight companies in the last financial year.
According to the finance department and concerned agencies, the target was to collect Tk 3,000 crore from the Chittagong Port Authority in the current financial year. Accordingly, the port authorities have deposited the entire money in the state treasury. The Mongla Port Authority has also deposited the entire amount in the treasury against the target of Tk 200 crore.
The Export Promotion Bureau (EPB) has also deposited Rs 300 crore in full. Bangladesh Standards and Testing Institution (BSTI) has also submitted the full target (Tk 100 crore). Similarly, the National Curriculum and Textbook Board (NCTB) has also deposited the entire amount of Tk 200 crore.
Besides, the government had set a target of taking Rs 5,000 crore from Bangladesh Petroleum Corporation (BPC). However, the company has so far deposited Rs 2,000 crore in the government treasury. The rest of the money will be deposited soon, the company said.
If you want to know about the BPC chairman. Abu Bakar Siddique said, “We have deposited Tk 4,000 crore in the last financial year.” Tk 2,000 crore has already been deposited this year. The target is to give more than 3 thousand crore rupees. We will give it in time.
Officials in charge of the finance department say it is the responsibility of the agencies themselves to deposit the surplus funds in the state treasury. But they were not doing it on various excuses. That is why the finance department drafted a law in this regard in September 2019 and sent it to the cabinet and the cabinet approved it. The law was passed in the parliament in early 2020.
In a briefing after the approval, the then cabinet secretary Mohammad Shafiul Alam said a total of Tk 212,100 crore was deposited in various banks by various autonomous bodies of the country, including autonomous, semi-autonomous, statutory government authorities and public non-financial corporations. This account is till 31st May 2019. According to Bangladesh Bank sources, exactly one year later, till May 31, 2020, the amount of deposits of the companies has increased to Tk 231,000 crore. In other words, the amount of deposits has increased by about Tk 20,000 crore in one year.
