The Cabinet meeting was held at the Prime Minister's Office under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Later in the afternoon, the Cabinet Secretary announced the decision of the meeting in a press conference at the Secretariat. Mahbub Hossain.

Currently, 25 lakh 75 thousand women across the country are given 550 taka per month under widow allowance.

The Cabinet Secretary said, according to the previous policy, it was said that his personal annual income should be below 12 thousand rupees as the eligibility to receive this allowance. Now those whose income is less than 15 thousand rupees can come under this. However, the amount of allowance remains the same (Tk. 550 per month).

The Cabinet Secretary said that now it has been made mandatory to pay this allowance through mobile financial services through G2G (direct from government to individual) method. And online application and selection has also been institutionalized.
The Cabinet meeting gave in-principle approval to the draft Import and Export Act 2004. This is mainly done under the Import and Export (Control) Act, 1950. That act only talked about goods. Services are also being added to it in the proposed law.
