ZONG, the country’s fastest growing cellular network and Askari Bank Limited today announced the launch of ‘Timepey’, a technology-based branchless banking service that will make available a range of banking services to just about everyone, with remarkable convenience and efficiency. Aimed particularly at the over 90% Pakistanis who do not have bank accounts, Timepey is set to give a new meaning altogether to financial inclusion.
Timepey users will be able to pay utility bills, transfer money to specified recipients anywhere in the country, deposit and withdraw cash and carry out account transfers. User convenience has been kept as the foremost consideration in developing this new service. Users do not have to be ZONG customers or even be mobile phone subscribers. As such the service offers complete flexibility to anyone who wishes to avail essential financial services without the need to open a bank account.
