Indian private sector lender Axis Bank has launched banking services on Facebook’s instant messaging app WhatsApp.

The move will enable customers to conduct basic banking activities through Whatsapp.

Customers can use the chatting app to view their account balance, details of recent transactions, credit card payments, fixed and recurring deposit details.

Additionally, Axis Bank customers can use WhatsApp Banking to resolve their banking queries, apply for different products, block their credit/ debit card and procure information regarding nearest branch, ATM or loan centre location.

The service will be available 24×7.

Axis Bank EVP and Digital Banking head Sameer Shetty said: “Our objective is to re-define the role we can play in the life of our customers, by elevating digital banking to new domains of customer engagement.
