MobiKwik announced its tie ups with 12 state electricity boards. The move comes as a part of MobiKwik’s expansion plan to set up a national base for utility payments. The state electricity boards that have been tied up with are Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Tripura, Meghalaya, Calcutta, Rajasthan and union territories of Daman and Diu.
