Domestic mobile wallet major MobiKwik on Thursday updated with five more regional language versions of its mobile app for its users.
"We have launched further regional versions of our app in Bengali, Odia, Punjabi, Tamil and Telugu languages. This move will further promote the adoption of digital wallet payments in rural India," said Upasana Taku, Co-Founder, MobiKwik, in a statement.
The app is now accessable in eight languages - English, Hindi, Gujarati, Bengali, Odia, Punjabi, Tamil and Telugu - on the app's lighter variant MobiKwik Lite.
Regional language users are expected to dominate the future growth of internet user base in India. Being a 1 mb app that works smoothly on EDGE connections, MobiKwik ‘LITE’ is addressing the underserved smartphone users in India, who face challenges of slow data connectivity and thus are unable to access digital payments easily. Users can download this app with just one missed call and sign up with their mobile number only, no email id required.
In times of note ban paralysing payments for the country, MobiKwik has taken many initiatives to ease the common man’s life. Since, the announcement of demonetisation that saw old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes cease to be legal tender, MobiKwik has registered 18-fold growth in transaction.
MobiKwik has also received the Bharat Bill Payment License with which, the company will be powering payments for all utility and convenience bills across India.
