The information was delivered at a press conference organized by Hajj Agencies Association of Bangladesh (HAAB) at a hotel in the capital on Thursday.

In his written speech at the press conference HAAB president M Shahadat Hossain said, each agency can announce their own special package out of these two packages. But no package price will be less than the announced package of HAAB. The hajj passengers can complete their registration process through depositing taka 1 lakh 51 thousand 190 including taka 1 lakh 38 thousand for plane fare. But the hajj passengers have to pay the full amount to the concerned hajj agency within March 30.

He said, every hajj pilgrim has to keep at leat 12 thousand 75 taka equivalent to 525 Saudi Riyals for the purpose of kurbani. The holy hajj may take place on July 30 depending on sight of the moon.

In this year total 1 lakh 37 thousand 198 people can perform holy hajj from Bangladesh. Of them 17 thousand 198 people can go under government management and 1 lakh 20 thousand people under private management.
