AIIMS joins hands with MobiKwik to become cashless
In the wake of demonetisation, All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Delhi has partnered with MobiKwik to convert all its payment facilities cashless. To start with, all the resident doctors, staff and visitors can pay with MobiKwik in the institution’s cafeteria. Payment of doctor’s consultation, tests and other services will be made cashless by the first week of January 2017.
AIIMS is a medical college and medical research public university based in New Delhi, India. The Institute was established in 1956 and operates autonomously under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. Daily, over 25000 patients visit the facility to receive best in class treatment for their ailments.
Upasana Taku, cofounder of MobiKwik while talking on the association said, “We are proud to support Indians during the current situation of cash crunch and lead India’s transformation into a less-cash economy. AIIMS is the foremost medical institution in India and we are glad to have partnered with them.”
Country’s second biggest e-wallet MobiKwik saw 7000 per cent increase in bank transfers since the app allowed users to transfer money instantly to any bank account without requiring any fee after the demonetisation. Mobikwik expanded its services by offering instant micro loans to its users who are running short on balance. The company in December also announced its tie up with dairy cooperative Amul to enable the Amul customers make cashless payments with mobile wallet at Amul’s exclusive as well as multi brand outlets. Not only this, MobiKwik has also partnered with Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) to allow e-cash payments for tatkal bookings. The company said that instant payments made through its wallet will help tatkal online in better management of thousands of tickets booked every minute. Uer can pay within 2 seconds to buy tatkal tickets but would have to preload their MobiKwik wallet with the desired amount
