DOP Mobile Money Transfer Procedure
As soon as the Cash in happens, both the sender and the recipient get a SMS on their mobile phones. The sender gets a Transaction ID and a Six (6) digit secret code in the SMS while the Recipient only gets the Transaction ID. Recipient can claim the money from any of the covered Post Offices by showing the Transaction ID that he receives on his mobile in the SMS and the Secret code, which he gets from the sender. In order to make process smooth and convenient, a notification sms is being sent to remitter as well as to recipient regarding transaction irrespective of their telecom operator.
For this initiative, India's pioneer and largest communication service provider (CSP), BSNL will provide mobile connections to DOP’s designated officials and BSNL will bring Global technology for Mobile Money Transfer. Each Post office shall be provided with a mobile handset with pre loaded application by BSNL’s technology partner M/s Maverick Mobile Solutions.
Our Take on the Service
This is a good initiative as it will be a cost effective solution. On money order the transfers is as high as 5% on the amount being transferred. This is what is called as a rise of a sleeping giant. We do hope that deptt of postal undertakes the process in a proper secured way to avoid any online frauds. However they need to let the user know incase the transaction id is not generated. Secondly, Mobile Money Transfer Launched only in Limited number of offices, and training also given only launched offices. We suggest that they impose a lower Limit for transactions in a predetermined time, value of transaction and number of transactions per assistant, per post office etc, to ensure that they establish their foot on the ground and then only they should go full fledged. We hope to integrate this system for the payment for our best intraday tip which performs every day
