Aadhar is committed to widening its reach to populations that are unbanked yet creditworthy. Keeping in mind customer centricity, they have planned to increase their spoke locations from 1500 to 2500 in tier 2, 3, 4 cities and towns and provide the benefit of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. These locations will form a part of an ‘Alternate Channel’ of Aadhar and will have a devoted manpower for sourcing and servicing the customers. To decrease the turnaround time (TAT), Aadhar has set up a digital Central Processing Unit (CPU) in Mumbai. This will enhance the customer experience as they are continuously investing in technology to facilitate the low-income segments which are not tech savvy by implementing VOICE ( IVR based messages) and VIDEO ( customer awareness series etc.) based communications in regional languages.
Aadhar is also offering an attractive fixed deposit scheme that not only provides good returns but also provides a loan facility on FD to meet urgent requirements.
