Panchagarh enters cashless age

After the capital Dhaka, the country’s most north district Panchagarh has entered cashless age in a bid to build ‘Smart Bangladesh’.

Earlier, the Bangladesh Bank (BB) launched ‘Cashless Bangladesh, Smart Bangladesh’ campaign from the capital's Motijheel area to bring small/micro merchants, like street vendors, under a low-cost payment system.

The campaign will promote cost-effective, secured and card-less digital transactions in an economy that almost entirely relies on paper currencies.
Some banks, MFS providers and card-based PSPs are taking part in it.
