Standard Chartered Bank is the first bank in the country to offer an instant approval-in-principle decision to customers applying for credit cards online
Standard Chartered Bank has launched Approval-in-Principle (AIP) for customers applying for credit cards online. This first of its kind offering in India, will enable customers to get an instant approval in-principal decision on his/her credit card application.
The approval is given with the help of a net based real-time engine which instantly checks the customers' information against the key bank policy rules and the customers' credit rating through the Credit Bureau. The result is communicated to the customer in a matter of a few seconds. Applications which are approved in-principal have a higher probability of eventually getting a card subject to the Bank's verification of details shared and documentation completion including collection of KYC and income-proof documents.
The service is currently available for customers applying for a credit card online and will subsequently be introduced at the physical branches and partner retail outlets. With the use of a strong technology backbone, a customer can expect to receive a Standard Chartered Bank credit card within in 48 hours.
