MFS likely to come under close watch
DOT Desk: Mobile financial services (MFS) like bKash and UCash are likely to be brought under close monitoring by the government soon, officials said, reports The Financial Express.
The government is moving towards such regular screening after it finds concrete evidence of criminal activities being carried out by using digital financial service, they added. To this effect, the home ministry in a recent letter sent by Md Jakir Hossain, deputy secretary of Public Security Division, has asked the finance ministry to give opinions in this regard as early as possible.
Earlier, the National Telecommunication Monitoring Centre (NTMC) has requested the home ministry to take next course of action in this regard. NTMC started its operation on January 01, 2017.
