State-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) on Thursday went digital by launching a bespoke mobile wallet (mobile payment App) that would enable its existing 100 million customers to make Bill payments and transact on e-commerce platforms.

This digital wallet was launched at an event by Manoj Sinha, Minister for Telecommunications in the capital.

The wallet has been developed and issued by MobiKwik on behalf of BSNL.

Speaking on the occasion, Anupam Srivastava, CMD, BSNL expressed hope that this BSNL mobile wallet will not only promote cashless economy but also enhance business for BSNL.

"Through this strategic partnership between BSNL and MobiKwik, we are taking another important milestone in achieving our Prime Minister Modi's vision of enabling and making India a less-cash society based on the grand vision of digital India", Srivastava said.
