had to memorize Bangla key board layout. Bangla computer key board was not available at

But scenario in mobile phone market is different. Though mobile phone sets with Bangla

Now the telephone regulatory commission has issued an order that from now on mobile
operators will not be allowed to sell their branded mobile phones and mobile phones without
Bangla will be seized in airports and seaports after 31st January.
They have advised those who have already opened LC for mobile phone without Bangla keypad

to promote Bangla and ICT will be friendlier to mass people. This new rule will not be
applicable for touch screen mobile phones.
