‘eKpay’ to simplify digital utility bill paymentsLast moment Eid shopping reaches peak in capital

BSS, Dhaka

Access to Information (a2i) Programme is set to formally launch a digital payment platform with a view to bringing all utility bill payment services under a single window to materialise the government’s vision of ‘Digital Bangladesh’.

“We’ve completed all kinds of preparations, including signing of memorandums of understanding (MOUs) with stockholders, banks and financial institutions concerned, on opening the digital payment platform ‘eKpay’,” a2i’s Digital Financial Service Lab Programme Manager Tohurul Hasan Tutul told the news agency.

At present, more than US$150 billion individual payments are made in Bangladesh of which 95 percent is made in cash, he said, adding that payments made by individuals can be categorized into three groups — Person to Business (P2B), Person to Person (P2P) and Person to Government (P2G).
