What is IMPS?

Immediate Payment Services (IMPS) is an instant interbank electronic fund transfer service through mobile phones. It facilitates customers to use mobile instruments as a channel for remitting funds directly to the beneficiary’s account based on the beneficiary’s mobile number and MMID their banks accounts and remitting funds.

What is MMID?

Mobile Money Identifier (MMID) is a seven digit unique random number issued by the bank upon registration. Remitter (customer who wants to send money) and Beneficiary (customer who wants to receive the money) should have this MMID for doing this interbank funds transfer.
You will have to share your mobile number and MMID with the Remitter (person who is sending the money) and Beneficiary (customer who wants to receive the money) for receiving funds through IMPS.

How to get MMID number?

Their unique MMID number generated from the system will be sent to their Mobile number via SMS.
