He added that their customers- predominantly banks- can use the service within 60 days of applying for it. The service would be offered in multiple languages including Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Bangla.
“Our investment is close to Rs 100 crore in this platform which requires lot of infrastructure development,” he said, adding that “through this service clients can generate revenue of Re one per week per customer.”
