Banking Made Simple and Convenient with HDFC Bank's Digital Offerings
One of the things that most people consider while opening a bank account is how close the nearest bank branch is to their home. After all, no one would want to deal with travelling along traffic-laden roads to complete simple banking functions such as transferring money, updating the passbook, depositing a cheque or other such activities. This becomes even more time-consuming and challenging if you have a busy schedule. So, it is only natural to look for a bank that is located either close to your home or workplace.
Enter digital banking
One way out of this problem is to open an account with a bank that offers a multitude of digital functions, such as MobileBanking and NetBanking. And there are several reasons why mobile banking is the present and future of banking.
Firstly, smartphones are ubiquitous with India being one of the largest markets for manufacturers around the world.
Secondly, they have become more versatile over time, thanks to the mobile app revolution.
And with the rise of internet penetration in India, a massive chunk of the population uses apps to go about daily life, including mobile banking apps.
According to the Reserve Bank of India report, during 2018-19, the total digital transactions in volume terms recorded a growth rate of 58% as opposed to 50.4% in 2017-18. These transactions are set to rise by four times in 2021. And as per the CEIC data, the volume of mobile banking transactions reached its peak in January 2020, recording 1440.27 unit million transactions. These figures show that digital banking is the way forward.
Therefore, to make banking easy, quick and convenient, the first step is to choose a digitally forward bank. For instance, HDFC Bank, one of India's leading private sector banks, has a MobileBanking facility that offer several benefits:
