Secondly, the wide network of Muthoot Finance branches will provide easy accessibility for the customers, thereby, increasing our market share in Punjab”, added Avinav Chaubey.

Interacting with the media Jose Allesh, Chief Manager, Muthoot Money Transfer said,“Due to the economic slowdown in 2010, there was a stagnant position in inward remittance but in 2011, when the economy regained, we did a record of one and half million money transfers.
