Nagad tops Dhaka WASA bill payments

Nagad tops Dhaka WASA bill payments

Nagad, a mobile financial service of Bangladesh Postal Department, has come out as the first choice for consumers when it comes to paying bills, as evidenced by its securing the top position in bill collection of Dhaka Water Supply and Sewerage Authority (WASA) in the fiscal year 2021-2022.  

To recognise Nagad's outstanding contribution to its annual bill collection, Dhaka WASA has conferred the "Bill Collection Award" on this state-owned MFS, says a press release.  

Local Government, Rural Development and Co-operatives Minister Md Tazul Islam handed over this award to Tanvir A Mishuk, founder and managing director of Nagad Limited, and Md. Shihab Uddin Chowdhury, chief commercial officer of Nagad, at a five-star hotel in Dhaka on Thursday.

Mohammad Muslim Chowdhury, comptroller and auditor general of Bangladesh, Muhammad Ibrahim, senior secretary to the Local Government Division, and Engineer Dr Golam Mostafa, chairman of Dhaka WASA Board, were present at the award ceremony as special guests.

Taqsem A Khan, managing director and CEO of Dhaka WASA, presided over the programme.

Tanvir A Mishuk, founder and managing director of Nagad Limited, said, "At the outset of Nagad's journey, we eased people's utility bill payments, enabling them to pay bills using their mobile phones from anywhere anytime."

In this way, Nagad customers can save both time and money, he also said, adding, "We express our gratitude to Dhaka WASA for recognising our contribution."

In pandemic times, utility bill payments using mobile phones became very popular and Nagad led from the front by introducing charge-free bill payments, Tanvir A Mishuk noted, adding that the top position that Nagad has gained in Dhaka WASA's bill payments bears testimony to its success.

"People's love for Nagad is encouraging us to introduce more products and services tailored to their needs," he also said.

Nagad apart, Dhaka WASA also awarded some other financial institutions, including banks and MFS providers, in different categories.
