Kotak Mahindra Bank (Kotak) has launched the first debit card-based authentication solution on NPCI’s (National Payments Corporation of India) e-Mandate (electronic mandate) API (Application Program Interface) platform.
With this, it has become the first ever Destination Bank to go live with both Net Banking and Debit Card-based e-mandate authentication. The objective of this initiative is to enable Kotak customers to create electronic mandates, similar to the former e-NACH with Aadhaar + OTP via both debit card and net banking provision.
