The JioMoney demonstration was one of the key highlights of the Digidhan Mela at People’s Plaza, Hyderabad which took place on January 18 and 19.

Union Ministers Bandaru Dattatreya and MJ Akbar formally inaugurated the JioMoney Kiosk at the Mela. Jio’s Telangana Sales Head M. Sreenivasa Rao briefed the Ministers on JioMoney application and its unique feature for cashless transactions.
‘Digidhan Mela’ was organised by the Union Government and Telangana State IT Department with an aim to spread digital financial literacy among the public. This is part of the Centre’s move to conduct melas in all major cities of India to popularise digital transactions. JioMoney, the digital payments platform of Reliance Jio, is aiding this economic transformation by enabling Aadhar-based utility payments across towns and villages. It is providing innovative solutions for feature phone users, and partnering with banking correspondent outlets for democratising participation across all geographies.
Digidhan Mela had around 80 stalls that showcased E-Wallet and M-Wallet services, UID, Public Distribution Systems and more. The Mela will soon take place in Warangal and Nizamabad as well. The first of these Mela’s took place last month in Gurgaon.
The recently concluded Hyderabad Mela took place at the People’s Plaza on January 18 and 19, and will be followed by Melas in Warangal and Nizamabad soon.
