According to the proposed budget, significant changes are being made to baggage rules. For instance,   For instance, 24-carat gold ornaments will not be allowed. Only gold ornaments of 22 carats or lower, up to 100 grams, can be brought in. Passengers below the age of 12 will not be allowed to bring in gold ornaments, gold bars, or alcoholic beverages as part of baggage facilities. Furthermore, baggage that has not been brought with passengers (unaccompanied baggage) will not receive duty exemption facilities. Duties must be paid on goods brought in through such baggage.

Following the presentation of the budget today, Members of Parliament will discuss the proposed budget. The proposed budget will then be passed on June 30. This marks the 53rd budget of Bangladesh, a significant milestone in the journey of the country.
