Deliberating on the capabilities of the card, Shyam Srinivasan, MD & CEO of the Bank said, “Our Credit Card is completely digital with a 3- click application approach which would make the card instantly available for use on FedMobile, our mobile banking application. We are glad we could make this digital leap and provide the consumers with the convenience they expect. We are delighted to bring forth our Credit Card to customers in partnership with Visa”.
T R Ramachandran, Group Country Manager, India, and South Asia said, “Consumers often turn to credit cards when planning big-ticket purchases but more recently, we have seen this usage extend to more segments, geographies, and categories. We are delighted to partner with Federal Bank and extend credit card services to the Bank’s different consumer segments and needs.
With the number of credit cards in the country currently far lower than credit eligible customers, we see great potential in partnering with the bank to scale up through such partnerships and offering consumers the convenience and benefits of paying by credit cards.”
