with MasterCard, to reduce frauds on card transactions
Mumbai, 28th January, 2016: YES BANK, India’s fifth largest private sector bank, is launching YES InControlin association with MasterCard.YES InControl will allow YES BANK customers to fully control their YES BANK Debit card usage in a manner that has not been experienced before in India. Using YES InControl customers can now customize usage parameters and limits for their YES BANK Debit Cards for better safety and efficiency.
YES InControl enables this by allowing the customers to suitably configure the parameters such as daily/ weekly budgeting, merchant category, location and time of the day. These parameters can be easily and conveniently set by the customer themselves through YES BANK NetBanking on a real-time basis, thereby having an enhanced security, better control and accurate management of finances. By imposing a limit on the debit card, customers will be able to ensure an additional layer of security on their card supplementing the existing state-of-the-art security offered by the YES BANK platform.
YES InControl also allows the customers to manage and modify limits on add-on cards linked to the YES BANK debit card thereby helping them be in-charge of the family’s budget and finances. The facility will also empower customers to build a spending and savings discipline, gradually over a period of time.
