"BSNL-MobiKwik wallet is an initiative to include semi-urban and rural India into the digital payments economy. We are enthralled by the initial response received, and hope to have 10-fold growth in GMV within the next 12 months," BSNL Chairman and MD Anupam Shrivastava said.

GMV is used in online retailing to indicate total sales value for merchandise or services sold through a marketplace over a period of time. Bipin Preet Singh, founder and CEO of MobiKwik said the wallet's vision is to empower Indians with easy access to digital payments and financial services.

"This milestone further strengthens our belief in masses' disposition towards digital payments," he added.
