ICICI Bank partners Aircel and Visa to launch innovative financial services for India’s unbanked population
ICICI Bank of India, the country’s largest private sector bank, is launching Mobile Money with wireless telecom provider Aircel. The mobile banking service runs on Visa’s platform and targets the underbanked population. The service will first be available in Chennai, followed by the Tamil Nadu area of India. A complete rollout will take place throughout 2013.
Mobile Money provides unbanked consumers with services such as deposit, cash withdrawals, money transfers and even bill payments.

Mobile Money extends its services to consumers from other banks as well, charging them a fee of 1-1.5% for each transaction.
