Launching it, Communication and IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad appreciated India Post Payments Bank’s efforts in the fight against Covid-19 by providing doorstep financial assistance through AePS leading to financial empowerment of the unbanked and the underbanked.
He said the launch of DakPay adds up to the legacy of India Post which is about reaching out to every household.
He added that this innovative service will not only give access to banking services and postal products online, but also is a unique concept where one can order and avail postal financial services at doorsteps.
Talking exclusively to AIR, Secretary, Department of Posts, Pradipta Kumar Bisoi said, this innovative App will help people transfer and receive money with ease and those who do not have smartphones can also do money transaction on this App with the assistance of postmen.
