Buy cattle thru bKash from six Dhaka haats under ‘Smart Bangladesh, Smart Haat’
People now can purchase sacrificial animals through bKash from six cattle markets in Dhaka.
Under the 'Smart Bangladesh, Smart Haat' initiative taken by Bangladesh Bank and Dhaka North City Corporation, bKash payment facilities will be available for purchasing sacrificial animals at cattle markets in Gabtoli, Basila, Aftabnagar, Vatara, Kawla and Uttara Sector 17.
The sellers will also be benefited there as they will be able to Cash Out the payment received in their bKash merchant account from the agent point at the haat without any charge or can get it directly in their bank accounts.
The agents of bKash will remain present at the cattle markets to ensure seamless Cash Out service for both buyers and sellers, bKash said in a statement today.
Those who want to buy sacrificial animals with or without cash can pay the Hasil through bKash. Customers will be able to easily pay the Hasil by scanning bKash QR code placed at different places of the cattle markets.
On the other hand, the leaseholder can also Cash Out the payment coming in their bKash merchant accounts from the agent without any charge or receive it directly to their bank accounts.
To facilitate cattle sellers and leaseholders with bKash account, arrangements of opening 'Personal Retail Account' (PRA) are available at the cattle markets.
The daily Cash Out limit of these PRAs will not be applicable and monthly limit has been increased to Tk 10 lakh from Tk 3 lakh according to new guidelines of Bangladesh Bank.
Similarly, the monthly transaction limit of receiving payment has been increased from Tk 5 lakh to Tk 10 lakh.
After July 12, the daily transaction limit will return to its previous state as per this directive.
