Besides, the gallantry award holding freedom fighters, war-wounded freedom fighters and martyred freedom fighters’ families will receive Tk 5,000 Victory Day allowance.

Moreover, the gallantry-award holding freedom fighters, war-wounded freedom fighters and martyred freedom fighters’ families will receive Tk 2,000 as the Bengali New Year allowance.

A proposal in this regard was approved at a virtual cabinet meeting on Sunday with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the chair.
