This time, bKash will provide financial assistance to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to one and a half million distressed families affected by the Corona situation. The Prime Minister’s unique initiative to stand by the bereaved families who have lost their livelihood will provide financial assistance of Tk 2,500 for each family during Eid like last year. Once again, the money is being distributed digitally with transparency, speed and security to the real victims through verification of national identity cards. Note that through mobile banking, financial assistance is being distributed to 34 lakh affected families at a cost of Tk 2,500.
Through development, this government financial assistance is reaching 10 lakh 50 thousand distressed families before Eid. During Ramadan and Eid, this money will provide some relief and help in case of emergency.
There is no cost to the beneficiary in case of cash out of this government assistance. The government will pay 15 taka for the total cashout cost and the remaining 31.25 taka will be borne by Bikash from being involved in this great initiative. All arrangements have been made so that the family members who have received help can cash out this money without any hindrance.
