Indepay, the youngest payment network focusing on new adopters of banking, will enable its banking partners to attain 100 million new customers through its pre-paid products.

The launch of pre-paid cards and mobile application comes as a relief in fraudulent times and is also in alignment with the Government's vision of cashless society.

Indepay will launch its pre-paid cards in February, this fiscal; focussing on under-banked and un-banked masses.The branchless mode of operation will involve enrolment of unbanked masses with simple Aadhaar card identification.

Rajib Saha, CEO and President of Indepay said, "The Company is working on a pilot basis in several cities across the country and hasacquired 10 lakh customers already. Customers will be able togetthese cards easily from Indepay's partner banks or business points. The cards can be recharged and used for all purposes, from making payments to withdrawing cash. Prepaid cards will work collaboratively with banks, card processors and mobile wallets."
