Role of Bangladesh Bank in Promoting

Islamic Banking in Bangladesh:
Though there is no complete Islamic Banking Act till date for controlling, guiding and
supervising the Islamic banks in Bangladesh, some Islamic banking provisions have
already been incorporated in the amended Banking Companies Act, 1991 (Act No.
14 of 1991). Inspection and supervision of the Islamic banks operation are being
scrutinized by the Bangladesh Bank as per the general guidelines framed for the
conventional banks. In view of the rapid expansion of Islamic banks in Bangladesh,
Bangladesh Bank issued a letter to the Islamic banks to carefully address and
examine the upcoming problems in due time. To help actualize those, Bangladesh
Bank identified the following problems and accordingly advised all Islamic banks on
5th March, 1997 to take appropriate measures on them through mutual discussion
and co-operation:
Development of an Inter-Bank Islamic Money Market.
Constitution of Central Shariah Supervisory Board.
Preparation of draft Islamic Banking Act.
Establishment of Islamic Insurance Company.
Development of New Financial Products in line with Islamic Shariah.
Constitution of Consortium/Syndicate by the Islamic banks for large financing.
In October, 2004, Bangladesh Bank has issued a Mudaraba bond named Government
Islamic Investment Bond on behalf of the government as a first ever Islamic
financial instrument in Bangladesh to facilitate the Islamic banks and financial
institutions to invest their funds (to be calculated as an outlet for maintaining SLR).
Government Islamic Investment Bond has been playing an important role in
developing the Islamic financial instruments in Bangladesh.
