Born in 1992 to parents Kamal Pasha and home maker Nasrin Akhter, Samir Pasha was brought up with the intention to tackle the reins of his father’s empire, the Pasha Group since he is the eldest out of three children. He is a Mastermind Alumnus. After completing his A-Levels he travelled to United Kingdom to commence his LLB degree from University of London. He returned equipped with an LLB degree in 2015 and joined his father’s company as an intern. After a year of hard work to prove himself he joined as a Director of the company in 2016. Currently he is enrolled in an MBA program which he felt the need to complete with relation to his work.
The Pasha Group, formed in 1984, mainly focused on Poll fittings of the power sector till Samir Pasha joined. Later he helped the company venture into building Transformers back in 2017. As we know Power generation works in three tiers– power generation, power transmission and power distribution. According to Samir Pasha, Bangladesh is currently generating more power than it needs which is visible from the aspect of much less load sheddings than the previous years. Load sheddings happen generally due to comparatively less power production than the increasing demand. Other causes of this serious issue are the illegal connection and misuse of electricity. The Government has been able to tackle these issues well in the last decade or so but the Transmission phase of Power Generation is yet to be sorted out in order to strengthen the Power Sector. The hassles related to Transmission are the use of old towers and land scarcity. Bureaucratic hurdles are the main hindrance in this sector says Samir Pasha.
There is a huge export potential in this sector. Africa and Sri Lanka can be potential export destinations in the future predicts Pasha. In this regard he mentions the ‘Bond License’ as a major obstacle which the government needs to solve as soon as possible or else this sector will face a major downfall. Light Engineering must be made export friendly.
Entrepreneurs involved in the Power sector needs to be relieved of the ‘Bond License’ fees that is a huge amount which investors cannot cope to leave at the hands of others. This money which although is refunded takes more than a year to get back. Once this problem is solved there will be more people interested to invest in the power sector, Pasha opined.
