The beneficiary will not need to bear any cash-out charge

BKash will distribute the cash aid of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to 1.05 million low-income group families affected by Covid-19.

In a unique initiative of the prime minister to stand by families who have lost their livelihoods, financial aid of Tk2,500 will be provided to each of them before the Eid, bKash said in a media release on Wednesday.

The money is being disbursed digitally with transparency, swiftness, and security to the real victims through verification of NID cards, it said.

Through MFS, the cash aid of Tk2,500 is going to be distributed to 3.4 million affected families.

The 1.05 million low-income families will receive this cash aid through bKash.

During the month of Ramadan and the Eid festival, this money will bring relief to the families and help them greatly in case of emergency, bKash said.

The beneficiary will not need to bear any cash-out charge.

The government will pay Tk15 from the total cash-out charge, while the remaining Tk31.25 will be borne by bKash.

BKash says it has taken all arrangements to enable the family members to cash-out the money without any hassle.

With the farsighted decision of the government, bKash said, it is becoming possible to disburse financial aid conveniently among the affected families amid such a critical situation.

This is a significant step towards building Digital Bangladesh, it said.

Last year too, bKash successfully distributed the cash aid of the prime minister to nearly 1 million families.
