Irregularities by GrameenPhone

A private satellite television channel aired a report in late December 2013 highlighting different irregularities done by the country’s largest mobile phone operator GrameenPhone.

According to the report, the telecom company has been fined twice for running illegal Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) business.

Mohammad Abdul Majid, former chairman of National Board of Revenue (NBR), says the company has received syndicated loan from local banks violating rules for foreign investors.

He also came up with some vital information about tax dodging by the company through bringing in materials like SIM card from outside the country showing bills several times higher than the original prices.
