UAE. Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank (ADIB), a top-tier Islamic financial services institution and an industry leader in new technology initiatives, has announced that customers are now able to check their balance and top up Salik accounts using the ADIB *161# Mobile Banking service.

This service uses Etisalat’s Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) technology, which allows interactive communication between ADIB and customers using their mobile phone.

The service is complimentary for both ADIB and Etisalat customers and does not attract any fees or extra charges.

*161# is a mobile banking solution which includes the Salik top-up in addition to other payments. Customers will be able to bank with ADIB via mobile by dialing *161# in addition to paying directly to Salik.

The new service enables ADIB customers to access their Salik accounts 24 hours a day. Credit can be securely added to their Salik account from the convenience of the home or office - even if they are abroad, by simply dialing *161#.

Unlike SMS banking, the USSD technology enables customers to conduct secure real time transactions via their mobile phones, as well as acquire information on the bank’s broad range of banking services. This is part of the bank’s strategy to provide innovative solutions to make banking simple and reiterates its commitment to provide customers with the latest technology services for their convenience.

ADIB’s Salik top up service is easily accessible through any mobile phone by dialing *161# and does not require any special downloads or software installations. It will be soon available on the Internet and other self service channels.

ADIB signed a two year agreement with the RTA in September 2011 for the recharge of Salik accounts at its UAE-wide network of 66 branches. This service will be soon available via the bank's electronic channels, including Internet, phone banking.
