International remittance further enhances our transactions-based product offerings. We will be ready to offer the inward remittance services to our customers by Q1 FY23. In sync with our digital strategy to enhance customer experience, we will also look at having this product on our mobile application as well.”

Fino merchants offer services namely as new account opening, cash deposit, money transfer, cash withdrawal via micro-ATMs or AEPS mechanisms, collect cash on behalf of various institutional clients among others. As a new offering International Remittance will help augment income of merchants and the Bank leading to strengthening of Fino’s robust distribution network.

“There is a major inward remittance corridor in states like Gujarat, Punjab, Kerala, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. We already have scaled up our merchant presence in all these geographies. We are therefore confident that the new offering will gain traction very quickly. We also expect to shore up more subscription based saving accounts due to this initiative as customers would prefer to park the remitted money in a Fino Bank account itself”, added Major Ashish Ahuja.
