customers are required to download the Yono app, enter their PAN and Aadhaar details, submit a one-time password, and fill other relevant details, in order to open an account, the release said.

The bank will issue a basic personalized RuPay ATM-cum-debit card to all the new account holders of insta saving bank accounts.

However, the nomination facility is also available for account holders along with SMS alerts and SBI’s missed call service.
