@harleen These payment banks seem to be a good initiative only if they actually provide what they promise to give to the rural community. Banking has still not reached far flung areas and if such banks branches can actually make it possible and easy, it would be great. There are other popular payment banks also like Airtel Payments bank, Paytm Payments bank, Fino Payments bank. But, how does one differentiate as to which one to choose? I think all these are similar in functioning and benefits. Any idea on this.
