Mumbai, March 27, 2008 : Reliance Communications, India’s foremost truly integrated telecommunications service provider, and Corporation Bank, a Premier Public Sector Bank in the country have joined hands to provide seamless mobile banking service to their customers across the nation
Reliance Communications has already been providing mobile banking services to customers in private banks like ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank, Axis Bank and IDBI Bank. However, it is the first time and the first telecom operator in India to offer such a service to a public sector bank.
Corporation Bank Account holders using Reliance Mobile Phones can now request for various information on their accounts such as balance enquiry, last three transactions, funds transfer, cheque status, request for new cheque book etc. This service obviates the need for any keywords for SMS or remembering any number as the application itself takes care of everything.
Users have to click on Reliance Mobile World (R World) on their mobile phones and choose the Finance section and subsection MBanking. Then they have to select Corporation Bank from the lists of Banks. (Reliance Mobile World >Finance > M Banking > Corporation Bk)
With the introduction of this facility, Corporation Bank has once again demonstrated that it is a pioneer among Public Sector Banks in offering innovative services through remote delivery channels, especially the Mobile Commerce Segment.
Announcing the launch Shri B.R.Bhat, General Manager, Corporation Bank said, ” As a pioneer in infusion of new technology and its applications, our Bank is happy to be associated with Reliance Communications for providing mobile services to the customers. Never before were the banking operations this simple and customer-friendly. We look forward to our ever-expanding customer base to make the fullest use of this quick and time saving service. It’s a real boon for our customers”
