The Bangladesh Bank (BB) has halved banks' general provisioning requirement to 1 percent against their loans for brokerage firms, stock dealers, and merchant banks.

"It has been decided that banks will have to maintain a general provision of 1 percent on unclassified amounts for loans to Brokerage House, Merchant Banks and Stock Dealers," BSS reports quoting a BB circular issued on Thursday.

It would be effective from March 30 this year.
