All BSNL customers can enjoy USSD based Mobile Banking services through USSD Short Code *99# absolutely free till 31st January 2017. BSNL had signed an agreement with National Payment Corporation of India (NPCI) for provision of USSD based Mobile Banking services to its mobile customers.

BSNL customers can enjoy USSD based Mobile Banking services (*99#) absolutely free till 31st January 2017

An official statement from BSNL read as follows - "To give impetus to the demonetization drive by Government of India and to facilitate masses to do cashless financial transactions even with feature phone, BSNL has decided to waive the tariff of National Unified USSD platform till 31st January, 2017."
National Unified USSD Platform (NUUP) is a mobile banking service provided by NPCI (National Payment Cooperation of India) which works on the USSD technology which does not require internet facility on mobile handset. The USSD short code messages are used by consumers to avail banking services like checking balance, withdrawals, deposits and peer-to-peer-transfer etc.
"The free usage of this facility/feature will boost government objective to move toward a less cash society. This will enable use of electronic banking facility and reduce difficulty for common man," RK Mittal, Director(CM), BSNL, said.
While smartphones users can avail banking services through mobile apps, USSD is prevalent among consumers with feature phones who do not have internet connectivity for basic banking services. The move is expected to nudge low-end feature phone users who constitute nearly 65 per cent of the Indian mobile market towards mobile banking and payment services.

  • Cash deposit
  • Cash withdrawal
  • View account services (Balance enquiry and Mini statement - last 5 transactions)
