The iMobile Pay app also removes the need to maintain various apps, whether they are payments or banking, as it enables customers to carry out all transactions.

After downloading the new ICICI mobile banking app, customers of any bank in India can instantly link their bank accounts and generate a UPI ID to use all the features.

ICICI Bank claims to have launched India’s first mobile banking app in 2008 through the form of iMobile.

Anup Bagchi – ICICI Bank Executive Director said: “In the recent past, we have captured two user insights while interacting with them. One, many of them, who are not our customers, are keen to use iMobile.

“Two, customers are tired of using multiple apps for different purposes and they really want to know if an app can take care of all banking and payments requirements.

“Armed with these insights, we are delighted to extend the ambit of our mobile banking app.

“Now on, customers of any bank can experience the ease, speed and safety of our mobile banking app. They can link all their bank accounts to this app. It means they can continue to bank with any bank and still use ‘iMobile Pay’ for all their digital transactions.

“Also, they can undertake all transactions, which they were so far doing through a gamut of payments app, through this app.”
