Only every sixth inhabitant of the region controls his account over the Internet, and less than half of the legal entities. As of April 1, 41.8 percent accounts of organizations had such an option. It is noted that for the year this share decreased by 0.2 percent.

The share of the republican citizens using the Internet, SMS and mobile applications to conduct transactions with their accounts, increases with slow rates. A year ago, 13.1 percent of all individuals used such option, this year — 16.

According to experts, the Russian banks "have yet to solve a lot of issues in terms of convenience of online work with deposits. For example, one of the drawbacks: often a deposit can be opened online, but still should be managed through an office".
