BPO’s “Nagad” now available across country

DHAKA, April 2, 2019 (BSS) – Bangladesh Post Office (BPO) today made announcement that its digital financial service “Nagad” is now available in all 64 districts of the country.

After seven days of official launching by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on March 26, BPO has brought the services to the doorsteps of people across the country, said a press release.

Users can now avail Nagad services in all the district post office branches and key market places. Within this short period of time, Nagad has become the partner of over one hundred thousand “Uddokta” or agents to offer essential services to its users.

About availability of Nagad Service points in each district of Bangladesh, BPO Director General Sushanta Kumar Mandal said, the reason behind connecting the remote areas of the country is to bring the digital financial services to the doorsteps of marginal people and serve them the benefits of Digital Bangladesh.

“The efficiency of BPO is commendable for spreading the services of Nagad in all the 64 districts and we are expecting to reach to the union level by next quarter,” he said.

Nagad has already initiated Digital KYC verification for ensuring hassle free user registration and verification process. To complete user registration process through Digital KYC, anyone has to bring a registered cellphone connection and national identity card.

Artificial Intelligence will be used for real time verification of user data and cross matching the NID information with the Election Commission Database and the application form for user registration will be filled up automatically by retrieving data from Election Commission Database. This process will take less than 30 seconds for each user registration.
