Telecom service provider Vodafone launched his popular mobile money transfer and payment service M-Pesa partnering with private sector ICICI Bank.

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.

M-Pesa, is a safe, secure and convenient service to transfer money and make payments beyond the reach of traditional banking channels,” Mehrotra said.

Observing that less than five per cent of villages in the country have access to banking services, Vodafone India, Business Head (M-Pesa), Suresh Sethi said, “Financial inclusion is a national priority and we believe that with M-Pesa, we now have the ideal offering to facilitate the same across the country in compliance with applicable regulations.”
