The Bangladesh Bank on Monday asked the non-bank financial institutions (NBFIs) to form complaint cells and settle clients’ complaints as per the guidelines on customer services and complaint management.

The central bank issued a notice in this regard, saying that the complaints must be settled and reported in accordance with the BB guidelines.

The complaint cells would have to be formed at the NBFIs’ head offices along with regional and branch-level offices and supervised by their chief executives, according to the notice.

The central bank found that the complaints against the non-bank financial institutions have been increasing due to the unsettled complaints at the NBFIs while most of the institutions do not receive clients’ complaints, which prompted the regulator to issue the notice.
