Payment Company Airpay Surpasses 15 Lakh Transactions on Rajasthan E-Governance Portal
Payment solution platform Airpay completed 15 lakh transactions on the Rajasthan government’s e-governance portal, e-Mitra. The company joined the e-Mitra platform in April 2020 and managed contributions to the Chief Minister’s COVID relief fund at the start of the pandemic. The company has extended its services to other departments’ online services and enabled the government to connect more than 100 state departments to the e-Mitra platform.
Airpay then expanded its bouquet of services on the platform, ranging from offering payment gateway services to departments and domestic money transfers to AePS-based cash withdrawal through the e-Mitra Kiosk network, among others.
The company now empowers all e-Mitra centers in the state, facilitating access to revenue for Kendra owners and the government of Rajasthan.
Commenting on the milestone, Kunal Jhunjhunwala, Founder and Managing Director of airpay, said the partnership has allowed the company to demonstrate its capabilities as a trusted technology partner for India’s digitalization. “The partnership is special for us at airpay. It came at an unprecedented time and provided citizens of the state with access to financial services during an unprecedented pandemic. It has also helped departments seamlessly adapt to a digital-first environment,” he said.
Jhunjhuwala thanked the Rajasthan government for their support during the period and added that airpay was now looking for opportunities to work with other state governments and help them expand their e-governance initiative.
Airpay now offers banking and financial services to over 35 lakh customers spread across 549 districts and 5,424 villages across 37 states and union territories in India. Airpay’s open architecture integrates seamlessly into the customer’s ecosystem, providing real-time visibility into their transactions, advanced analytics and reporting
“The wide variety of services provided by airpay has not only facilitated citizens, but also increased revenue generation opportunities for kiosk holders,” said RK Sharma, CTO, DoIT&C and OIC – e-Mitra.
Developed in partnership with several private entities, the Government of Rajasthan’s e-mitra provides more than 300 deliverable public services under a single cap. e-Mitra counters or kiosks have been set up in rural and urban areas to offer services related to various government departments without people needing to visit government offices.
