With the use of M-Pesa account, mobile customers in Tamil Nadu and Chennai, can deposit and withdraw cash, transfer money to any mobile phone, remit cash to any bank account and can also make payments to utility bills, Vodafone said in a statement.

The service was launched by Vodafone India, Operations Director (South), Suresh Kumar, Vodafone India, Business-Head, Tamil Nadu and Chennai, Apoorva Mehrotra and Vodafone India, Business Head-M Pesa, Suresh Sethi, here.

“We are delighted to bring to Tamil Nadu and Chennai, the M-Pesa, a mobile banking service, in partnership with ICICI Bank.
