The bank said in a statement it is already the largest issuer of RuPay debit cards and has the "fastest-growing" bank account base.

Visa virtual debit cards would enable its customers to transact at all merchants accepting payments through cards.

For the first time, the bank's customers would also be able to make international transactions using their Visa debit cards, it said.

Soon, the customers will also have an option to request for a physical card.

This will enable customers to make contactless payments through their chip-inserted cards.
