Obayed Ullah Al Masud, Managing Director and CEO of Rupali Bank, said, “The people of the country are going through a hard time due to Corona pandemic. This gift from Hon.

Here many government departments and 4 mobile financial service providers are working together to build a large database of beneficiaries from every nook and corner of the country and disburse government incentive directly to their mobile phones. We believe this is a big step forward to make integrated use of data, technology and experience to deliver better services to the people and take the country forward.”
