19 April 2014 [08:15] - TODAY.AZ
“In order to eliminate all previous negative cases, we will update all social payment cards,” said the Minister of Labor and Social Protection of Population Salim Muslimov, APA reports.

Muslumov said all banks can participate in this tender launched by the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of Population, there is no problem in this issue: “However, these banks must have ATM network and demand us to pay the lowest service charges.”

“There are over 5 million cards in the bank cards market in the country. The majority of these cards are social payment cards applied by the state. For example, the State Social Protection Foundation has given cards to pensioners, the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of Population to those who are receiving social assistance and the State Committee for Work with Refugees and IDPs to this type of people. We think if a unified social payment card is applied, the situation may become easier. These issues are being considered.”
