Banking during floods in Assam


Mumbai: Villages of many districts in Assam are presently submerged in the ravaging floods of a furious Brahmaputra. The poor villagers have no access to any kind of service and have run out of cash to buy even things of most basic requirements.


In these difficult times, Mr. Kashem Ali, A Customer Service provider of PayPoint India, has been rendering yeoman service silently, in his own small but innovative way, in Barpeta District of Assam. Every morning, he sails on a local boat with his laptop, dongle for internet connectivity, fingerprint scanner, basic printer, etc. for over 6 kilometers in the dangerous and fast flowing waters of the overflowing Brahmaputra to provide banking service to 7 villages.


As PayPoint India delivers banking service in alliance with SBI, Mr. Kashem Ali is able to provide all the basic banking services, including withdrawal of funds from the accounts of other banks also. He has been providing this service daily, putting his own life to great risk, to over 2,200 residents of these small and inundated villages at a time when the villagers have no other means to access their own money lying in their accounts.
