essential services to the Nagad users.

Regarding the availability of Nagad Service points in each district of

all the 64 districts of Bangladesh and we are expecting to reach to the

union-level by next quarter, he said.

free user registration and verification process. To complete user

registration process through Digital KYC, anyone needs to bring a registered

cellphone connection and national identity card.

Database and the application form for user registration will be filled up

automatically by retrieving data from Election Commission Database. This

process will take less than 30 seconds for each user registration.
