We are delighted to be one of the first banks to serve as an online payments and transactions partner on eNAM and play our part in accelerating the digital revolution that is underway in the Indian agriculture sector.”

According to eNAM, it currently covers 1,000 mandis across 18 states and three union territories. There are around 1.68 crore farmers registered on the platform.

(KMFL), the Group’s flagship company, received banking license from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), becoming the first non-banking finance company in India to convert into a bank – Kotak Mahindra Bank Ltd.
