Anirudh Kamani, general manager, ICICI Bank commented, "We are extremely pleased to partner with the state government to extend technology-based services for the people of Odisha.

"This initiative is in line with the ICICI Bank’s philosophy of ‘Khayaal Aapka’ wherein we put customer’s convenience first."
