On November 22, 2022, Airtel Payments Bank announced to launch of a new system i.e. Face Authentication (Face Recognition) -based computer technology for the account opening process for customers. The Payments Bank said the facility would further ease account opening, making it seamless and convenient for new customers.

The Payments Bank said the new facility would help business correspondents (BCs) of the bank to open an account just by undertaking face authentication through electronic know-your-customers (e-KYC). The authentication is processed using a newly developed mobile application by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), the Payments Bank said, adding that, the business correspondent will now only need a smartphone to open an account. The bank will make this facility available across all its 500,00 Banking Points by the end of this year.
