ICICI Bank has recently announced its new feature along with its retail Internet banking – ‘DigiLocker’, an online repository platform for issuance, verification and storage of digital certificates and documents on cloud. DigiLocker is an initiative of the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology.
“With this integration, all savings account customers of ICICI Bank who have mapped their Aadhaar numbers with bank accounts can directly register and access DigiLocker while they are logged in to their Internet banking account,” the bank said in a statement. ICICI Bank is offering this service free of cost, it said.
B Madhivanan, Group Executive and Chief Technology and Digital Officer of ICICI Bank, said with the increased adoption of digital technology, “we will continue to offer diverse range of digital initiatives and amplify the government’s efforts towards a digitally empowered community”.
