Each year State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) issues new currency notes for Edi, this year the Eid will be falling in mid of June and SBP will start issuing new & fresh currency notes from 1st June 2018.
Abid Qamar, spokesperson of SBP, said that soon a press release will be issued in which more details will be revealed for the public.
The issuance of new currency notes will be similar to last year when SBP along with Pakistan Banks Association (PBA) introduced an electronic message system.
The method to get new currency notes is very simple, every person who wants to get fresh currency notes from Bank is required to send a message to 8877.
The message should contain CNIC number and the code of the bank branch from where the person wants to withdraw the amount.
The system will allot a transaction number for the person and send the address of the bank branch, using these details the person can visit the branch and get the new currency notes.
The demand of new currency notes is increased in Eid because these notes are used as gifts (Eidi) in all over Pakistan.
