Customers can reach their savings account balance, their last three transactions, credit card limit, get details of pre-approved instant loan offers and block/unblock credit and debit cards.

Additionally, they can also get details of the nearest three Icici Bank ATMs and branches in their vicinity.

Anup Bagchi, Executive Director, ICICI Bank said, “It has always been our endeavour to offer improved convenience to our customers.”

“Recently, we had rolled out ‘ICICIStack’, the most comprehensive digital platform in the country by a bank as it can facilitate crores of customers to continue all their banking, digitally and from a remote location, without visiting a bank branch.”

Therefore every ICICI Bank savings account customer who is also a user of WhatsApp may access the new service.
