Taking a step towards India’s entry into the world of open banking, RBI first announced the Account Aggregator (AA) framework via a Master Directive in June 2016. The initiative aims at enabling individuals as well as small and mid-sized businesses to avail of better financial services.

As an FIP, IndusInd Bank will facilitate the sharing of financial information by customers with Financial Information Users (FIUs) on the Account Aggregator Ecosystem in a secure manner after the consent is received from the customer. When the other financial institutions go live on the AA framework, it will eliminate the need for collecting/ submitting physical documents for getting loans or accessing other financial products and services.

Soumitra Sen, Head – Consumer Banking, IndusInd Bank, IndusInd Bank said, “…The Account Aggregator framework is an important step towards that direction which will empower the customer to view as well as choose their preferred product & service from banks and other participating players. We are happy to collaborate with the DigiSahamati Foundation in this exciting journey and look forward to contributing to the vision in a significant way…”

BG Mahesh, Co-Founder, DigiSahamati Foundation stated, “It’s no surprise that IndusInd has led the way in adopting the Account Aggregator Framework – they saw the game-changing ability of AA framework to India’s financial services market early on and led the industry with that conviction. As an early mover in this space, they have the opportunity to bring diverse and innovative products to market.”

The Account Aggregator system enables individuals and SME customers to share their financial information digitally with regulated financial institutions like banks, NBFCs, among others, within a secure framework.
