The Minister said “SCO is playing a major role in providing telecom services in Azad Jammu & Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan. I am confident that S-Paisa will efficiently cater for everyday banking needs of the people while filling the huge financial services gap in the region that has existed for a long time,”

The launch of S-Paisa is truly a major development in line with present government’s policy of financial inclusion of unserved and underserved areas.
