 “Paying money via mobile phone offers great convenience. We are making efforts to expand such services to more people and to provide an easy money transfer system to residents of villages and remote areas,” said Nourullah Delawari, the central bank chief.

According to the central bank, salaries of the government staff are already mostly paid through the mobile service, and efforts are underway to expand it throughout the country.

Bank officials have also said that it is possible for users to transfer funds without having a bank account, and the central bank has prepared draft laws to prevent the loss of funds within the service. (Tolo News)
