This year’s minimum Fitra has been set at Tk70 per person.

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.

The National Fitra Fixing Committee set the amount in a virtual meeting on Wednesday.

Fitra is paid to the poor before the Eid Jamaat, the special prayer offered to commemorate the Islamic festival of Eid.

Fitra, also known as Zakat al-fitr or fitrana, is a compulsory charity paid by Muslims at the end of the month of Ramadan.
