Inter-bank electronic cheque transaction and electronic fund transfer (EFT) activities have been suspended due to technical glitches.
Bangladesh Bank revealed the information on Thursday.
A senior official of Bangladesh Bank said that an optical fibre cable has disconnected between two data centres of the central bank on April 13. Two technology-related solution teams - Microsoft and VMware - have been working to resolve the issue, he said.
More than Tk 13,000 crore is settled through the two transaction systems daily, the bank officials said, adding that it is still unable to know when the system can be restored.
