The customer can upgrade his/her account immediately by simply visiting any of the Mobitel locations.
The Pension Disbursement via mCash facility offers a world of convenience to pensioners, especially senior citizens, who do not have to physically travel to a bank branch to collect their pension. mCash allows them the ease of use of having their pension credited directly onto their mobiles.
