Nagad, a mobile financial service provider in Bangladesh, has come up with a smart payment option at the cattle haat, offering its customers safe and convenient buying and selling of sacrificial animals, according to a statement.

As part of its efforts to help Bangladesh's transition to a 'Smart Nation', such a payment option has been introduced at smart cattle markets. Customers will get attractive gifts alongside a maximum security while making payments using Nagad.

Under the initiative taken by the Bangladesh Bank, Dhaka North City Corporation and Chattogram City Corporation, ten smart cattle markets have been set up in Dhaka and Chattogram cities.

The Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock and the Bangladesh Dairy Farmers' Association are providing all necessary support to the management of smart haats. Nagad has installed booths and employed skilled staffers in those cattle markets to provide various services to buyers and sellers.

Nagad has taken the lead in every initiative of the government to promote cashless transactions. As part of that, it has been entrusted with the responsibility to ensure cashless transactions at two smart haats in the capital - Gabtali and Basila cattle markets.

People who buy or sell animals for certain amounts through Nagad at both the cattle markets will get attractive t-shirts, caps, mugs, key rings, and pens.
