Contributions, Awards and Achievements

Nasir Uddin Biswas had a great desire for education. Once, during his speech, he shared that when he was in school, most of the parents were not very concerned about their children’s studies. They didn’t know the value of education. That’s the reason; most of the students were not interested in school or college. They used to spend most of their time playing or roaming around the village. Nasir knew that it was education that could remove the darkness of illiteracy from his village. That’s why he decided to establish schools and colleges in Kushtia. 

As a result, in 1988, he set up “Nasir Uddin Girl’s High School”. Later the school was expanded to college in 2002. In 1992, he established another school after his mother’s name “Rahima Begum High School”. After two years, in 1994, he made the foundation of “Nasir Uddin Biswas Degree College” in Daulatpur village, Kushtia. Besides, to serve his village with better medical care, he established “Anowara Biswas Ma O Shishu Hospital” in 1991. The hospital was named after his beloved wife Anowara Biswas. 

Though he selflessly invested all in his dream business and social work, the country didn’t forget to hold him in high esteem. Because of his outstanding business strategy, Nasir Uddin Biswas was honored with many awards in the business arena. He was awarded with “Business Person of the Year” in 2013. Nasir also achieved the “CIP Awards” several times. 


Nasir Uddin Biswas was a man miles away from all controversies. But the road of this tremendous success was not as easy as it seems. At the early part of his career, he faced a fall down. One of the influential personalities named “Akij” offered him to supply tobacco to his Dhaka Tobacco Factory. During that time, the factory was the largest tobacco factory in Bangladesh. He was very convinced and agreed to the proposal without any delay. But soon the business ties broke as their bonding did not last long for some unknown reason. But after a while, the misunderstanding became a blessing as Nasir decided to start his own business. As a consequence, he became one of the most influential business personalities in Bangladesh. 

But he faced another fall down near the end of his career. Regretfully, this time it was by his own family. As Nasir Uddin Biswas married twice. The relationship between the two families is not very good. Once he decided to gift some shares of Nasir Glass to his son and daughter. But the trouble overwhelmed as he got to know his son and daughter were planning to take over the whole company from him. When he learned about the conspiracy, he became very heartbroken. Soon, he bought back all the shares gifted to them and cemented the holdings of his company back. Today he made “Nasir Group ” a multi-billionaire company as a market leader in Bangladesh.


Nasir Uddin Biswas is a name of trust and respect for his native. If Kushtia had become a town of industries, the intellect behind the masterpiece was Nasir Uddin Biswas. His business not just made thousands of people self-reliant. However, the expansion of his business around the global market uplifted the economy of Bangladesh to another level. The proficiency of his industries also helped to earn the country huge foreign currency as well. 


Besides, the contribution of Nasir Uddin Biswas to his native land, made him even more generous. He always encouraged the children for education. Often he used to say that if one has the desire to achieve something, he can achieve anything. Once he said in his speech, “If the son of a farmer can become a millionaire, you can also achieve whatever you want”.


Since 1991, he started giving scholarships to 100 students. So that the students can step further with proper education without any disruption. He also laid the foundation of 14 schools in 14 unions of Kushtia all by his earnings. That’s how he became the light of thousands of lives in Bangladesh. 


Nasir Uddin Biswas was a man who stepped into the highest peak of his success with his utmost hard work and dedication. Belonging to a poor farmer’s family, he never stopped dreaming. It was his dreams which made him come this far. The way he built the whole company all by himself is tremendously praiseworthy. But, 

even being such a business giant, the way he cared about his people and served until his last breath made him the heart of a thousand souls. No matter how far time flies, he will always be remembered by the people of Bangladesh.
