Mobile top-up vendors want more commission
Mobile top-up vendors want more commission

Mobile phone top-up and mobile banking vendors have threatened to go on strike if their seven-point demand including higher commission is not met within a month.

Some 536,000 vendors would stop their service if “our demands are not fulfilled within January,” said Md Shafiqur Rahman, president of Bangladesh Mobile Phone Recharge and Banking Association, reports

At a press conference at Dhaka Reporters Unity on Sunday he claimed the government was losing about Tk 10 billion in revenue as there was no regulation on the commissions for the service.

The mobile banking leads to transaction of around Tk 4 billion every day while Tk 2 billion is transacted for the phone top-up service, said  Mr Rahman.

The platform demanded that the commission for each recharge of Tk 1,000 should be fixed at Tk 100,up from the existing Tk 27. The  agents’ commission for mobile banking will be increased to Tk 06 from the current Tk 4.20 for every Tk 1,000 transacted, it demanded.

 Mr Rahman also said that only registered vendors should be allowed to run the mobile top-up business and the recently imposed phone recharge ceiling has to be withdrawn, according to a news agency.
