The Bangladesh Telecommunications Company Limited (BTCL) has launched its own over-the-top (OTT) calling and messaging app Alaap, which can now be recharged easily through bKash.
BTCL made the announcement of its partnership with bKash via a press release issued in this regard on Thursday.
To recharge, customer needs to select bKash in the 'Recharge' option of the Alaap app and enter the amount in the next step.
After that, the customer needs to enter a bKash number, OTP and PIN at the bKash payment gateway to complete the recharge, the release said.
