  • JBK eliminates the need for debit card and PIN thereby enhancing customer experience.
  • At a nominal annual subscription fee customers can also get a zero balance account with no MAB requirement, no debit card, ATM and SMS charges and full rights to access BPay mobile banking app.

What is Aadhaar Based e-KYC?

  • eKYC is the electronic version of the KYC which is administered by the Unique Identification Authority Of India (UIDAI).
  • Like the normal KYC, the idea of eKYC too is to verify the identity of an individual except that it is done online.
  • KYC = Know Your Customer.
