Prize Bond - Help


KaliaGroup has played an important role in enhancing the sale of Prize Bonds nation wide. More over, they have also given many useful suggestions and feedbacks to the Government to run this scheme in a profitable and successful manner. In fact, the recent withdrawal of the series-wise draw system was solely due to Kalia Group’s tireless efforts. And this Group is also persuading the Govt. to increase the number of prizes in a series, which hopefully, like in the past on Group's demand, would be implemented in the near future.
