These new partnerships now enable the added convenience of making bill payments towards the NWSDB and SLT from any of DVB’s branches.  This agreement is part of a move by DFCC Vardhana Bank to offer a greater range of services to its customers.

Commenting on the signing of the agreements, DFCC Vardhana Bank’s CEO Lakshman Silva stated: “Enabling easy bill payment via DFCC Vardhana is just one method of making our customer’s day-to-day activities more efficient. Interestingly, we have opened up this service to anyone, and you don’t have to be one of our customers to make use of this facility. This is one of the many ventures we have underway to improve our financial services and will continue to upgrade our services and products, continuing to be the leading development bank in the country.”

Bill payment services through DFCC Vardhana Bank branches and service centres are also available for customers of Dialog, Mobitel, Union Assurance Insurance, LECO and Lanka Bell.
