Commenting on the partnership with NIRA, rx DTB Managing Director Mr. Varghese Thambi said the bank was happy to play a facilitating role to ensure that all citizens enjoyed their right of registration and recognition a factor that is key to ensuring proper planning for national development.

Speaking at the launch of the collection centre, NIRA Vice Chairperson Hon. Ruth Kavuma commended DTB for bringing its services closer to the people and urged those that have not been registered to do so because it’s now easier and faster to undergo the process.
