E-banking and m-banking became popular when Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government announced demonetisation. These facilities were extensively used ever since the breakout of the coronavirus pandemic. This system became exceedingly famous as it avoided a layer of direct contact.
The m-banking system requires a UPI ID linked with a valid mobile number. Transactions in m-banking got further simplified when the users could pay money by simply scanning the QR code. There are quite a few independent m-banking apps like Paytm, Google Pay and Phone Pe, among many others. Apart from these apps, each bank too has started making its own app, which includes the m-banking and wallet facility. SBI Bank has the YONO app while the ICICI bank has the iMobile app.
