The objective has always been to simplify banking and make it more convenient, by deploying the best of what technology has to offer. Our customer-centric solutions, like the recently launched plastic payment innovations in the form of the 'IndusInd Bank Duo Card' (India's first 2 EMV chip debit-cum-credit card) and the 'IndusInd Bank Nexxt Credit Card' (India's first interactive credit card, with buttons), reflect our ability to nurture innovation and embrace technology. This philosophy has been behind our decision to join the Maharashtra Government led Fintech Accelerator””

“Technology, without differentiating between customers, helps develop convenient and simple products for all. It is therefore important for new age banks like Fino Payments Bank to collaborate with emerging Fintech firms to develop innovative solutions and grow. Such emerging start-ups need a supportive ecosystem to thrive and succeed. As a first step, corporates and banks have taken the lead to form the Mumbai Fintech Accelerator, which I believe will play a critical role in shaping the road ahead for Fintechs in the country.”
