A basic personalised RuPay ATM-cum-debit card will be issued to all the new account holders of insta saving bank accounts. Here’s how one can open such an account: download YONO app, enter PAN and Aadhaar details, submit one-time password, and fill other relevant details.
Nomination facility, SMS alerts and missed call service are also available to account holders. Once this process is complete, the account will get activated instantly and transactions too can begin immediately.
Additionally, customers will get 12 months’ time to upgrade to full Know Your Customer (KYC) account, which can be done by visiting their nearest SBI branch.
Notably, YONO, which stands for ‘You Only Need One’ is an integrated digital banking platform offered by the SBI. Launched on November 24, 2017 by the-then Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, it helps users to access a variety of financial and other services such as flight, train, bus and taxi bookings, online shopping, or medical bill payments.
It is available as a smartphone app for both Android and iOS.
