Country’s leading business conglomerate Bashundhara Group has launched free home delivery service of its LP gas on phone calls.
Bashundhara Group Vice Chairman Shafiat Sobhan inaugurated an ‘Order Point’ in the Bashundhara Residential Area in the capital on Sunday to offer the service.
Speaking at the function, the vice chairman said Bashundhara Group wants to take its services at the door of LPG consumers.
He said the new order point will function as ‘direct sales point’ and ‘instant home delivery point’ for the residents of Bashundhara and its neighbouring areas.
It will be trouble-free for them to collect LPG cylinders, he added.
“Our officials are ready to give home delivery service within three hours of receiving a phone call from 9 am to 5 pm everyday initially. But, anybody can collect LP gas cylinders from the point up to 9pm,” he said.
The point has two phone lines -- 01991197804 and 16339 -- for receiving orders from consumers.
Shafiat Sobhan Sanbir said Bashundhara Group has a plan to expand the free home delivery service across the country in future.
