If we talk about the availability of staff in State Bank, then due to Covid-19 60 percent of the bank staff is working from home and hence all those unnecessary work is not carried out or not being performed by State bank due to staff at work from home.

So it has been decided by the State Bank of Pakistan not to print and issue fresh currency notes on this Eid.

Muslims have two Eid in a year and Eid ul Fitre is special due to the issuance of fresh currency notes by SBP to the general public. On the Eve of Eid Ul Azha no fresh currency Notes are issued by State Bank.
