Idea Payments Bank to Unveil in the First Half of This Year

Idea Payments Bank

Aditya Birla Idea Payments Bank is all set to roll out fully functional branch by the first half of this year. The payments bank is relying on the scale and brand name to attract customers. The payments bank is a combined venture between Aditya Birla Nuvo Ltd (ABNL) and Idea Cellular.

The bank will roll out its operations over 1.5 lakh touch points, an in-inbuilt United payment Interface (UPI) solution. As per RBI norms, Idea payments Banks accept deposits and open current and savings accounts. However, the bank is not permitted to lend or issue credit cards.

“It is clearly a scale game, unlike traditional banking. In traditional banking, you can put up one branch and still do well. Here, it is scale since technology platform is the same which has to accommodate many transactions. So more the transactions you accommodate, more benefit you can give to the customers,” says, Sudhakar Ramasubramanian, designated Chief Executive Officer at Aditya Birla Idea Payments Bank.

Also, 15% of India is our existing customer base, and 200 million of 8 billion is like 3% of the world’s population,” added Sudhakar.
