October 2011: 15.11M IMPS Mobile Money IDs; 12,511 Transactions

The Interbank Mobile Payment Service saw a growth of 1.87% in the total transactions taking place, with a 0.97% increase in total number of Mobile Money IDs (MMID) being issued, according to data published by the National Payments Council of India. The growth in transaction volumes, from 12,281 to 12,511 marks a reduction in the growth of transactions month on month. Details: Things might change once merchant transactions are enabled (at present only P2P payments are allowed), but there is no guarantee of that; the pilot for merchant transactions began in June. 30 banks have so far signed up for IMPS, the IMPS page now has customer care numbers, to enable people to get MMIDs. The more the MMIDs, the more the likelihood that P2P transactions will take place, and maybe, there will be more transactions than there are MMIDs, but the figures for this month are pretty dismal. We'd again like to reiterate that Banks are still not promoting the IMPS at a level necessary for its growth.
