The facility can be used at 7,000 Amul outlets and three lakh Amul multi-brand outlets and retailers across the country, the company said in a statement.
“This tie-up will help us provide remunerative and quick returns to our 3.6 millions farmers or milk producers whose livelihood depends upon the sale of milk to the Amul cooperative structure,” said R.S. Sodhi, Managing Director, Amul.
With MobiKwik, 15-20 per cent of transactions at Amul stores are expected to go digital.
