Airtel Launches Airtel Money in Gurgaon
Now available in Gurgaon, the service will soon be launched across several other key cities in India in a phased manner.
How it works
- Load cash: Load cash on your airtel mobile by visiting your nearest airtel retail outlet.
- Pay bills & recharge: You will be able to use this cash in your mobile for making bill payments (electricity, gas, financial services, etc.) and recharge
- Shop & make payments: Instead of cash, pay over-the-counter merchants such as your nearest kirana store, chemist, etc using your mobile phone. You can even sit at home and pay for services like booking movie tickets online
The mobile phone is fast emerging as a device that enables our lives in more than many ways. Taking this a step further, we are proud to launch airtel money as a first-of-its-kind service from a telecom operator, that transforms the mobile phone into a secure and convenient wallet which customers can use to load money and use it for shopping and making payments. We see a huge potential for mCommerce services in India and are confident that the launch of airtel money will facilitate a paradigm shift in the way consumers transact”. Said Mr. Atul Bindal, President – Mobile Services, Bharti Airtel
Airtel customers can dial 12121 to get the service – currently in Gurgaon only.
