Mumbai: ICICI Bank has launched its Global Indian account facility in the UK and US. Bollywood actor and ICICI Bank’s ambassador Shah Rukh Khan will be seen promoting this initiative amongst his NRI fan club.
The Global Indian Account facility addresses the comprehensive banking needs of Indians moving overseas. These customers, prior to their departure from India, will have a bank kit comprising the host country bank account, debit card and internet banking deliveries, subject to regulatory requirements.
The facility will be available for Indians moving to UK, US and Canada.
ICICI Bank executive director Sonjoy Chatterjee said, "To begin with, we will be joining hands with companies whose employees have a salary account with us. Whenever a particular company is sending its employee abroad for work, the employee can have this kit from us so that he does not have to face any problem overseas."
To promote this facility globally, Khan will initially be traveling abroad to meet and address the needs of NRIs who already have an account with ICICI.
"This facility was born out of customer needs. It was their enquiries in regards to giving them some facility wherein they can access their Indian accounts abroad that generated this idea. Hence initially we have decided to target the customer base which already exists with ICICI in UK US and Canada," added Khan or Chatterjee???.
