After the launch of “ICICI Stack” that continues to facilities several retail customers, merchants, retailers, professionals, startups, e-commerce and companies across the country to continue their banking activities amid coronavirus pandemic, ICICI Bank has now initiated banking services on WhatsApp.
This enables ICICI Customers to carry out a number of banking activities from their homes 24*7. Account-holders can check the balance of their savings account, block or unblock their debit or credit card, check their credit card limits and get the details of the last three transactions. Further, the ICICI Bank customers can get the details of the nearby three ICICI Bank ATMs and branches in their locality.
“It has always been our endeavour to offer improved convenience to our customers. Recently, we had rolled out ‘ICICIStack’. Now, we have introduced this service on WhatsApp, one of the most popular instant messaging applications in the world. Our retail customers can execute a host of their banking requirements on their own, without visiting a branch. The services are instantaneous and secure.
