Speakers at a seminar here today underscored the need for speedy implementation of mobile banking service across the country for the greater interest of bringing rural people under the banking facilities.
With the introduction of mobile banking service, they said, people of all strata, including rural people, who are deprived of banking facilities, would get such facilities very easily as there are 66 million Cellphone subscribers in the country. It would also help implement the present government’s vision to build Digital Bangladesh by 2021, the speakers added.
