“Our branch banking strategy is to re-imagine this channel by bringing more science to the art of relationship management,” said Mr. Arvind Vohra, Country Head, Retail Branch Banking at HDFC Bank. “Our branches represent the Bank to our customers, society and other stakeholders and they own retail and business customer relationships. We are transforming our branches into ‘phygital’ infrastructure assets. Through catchment scoping and mining with institutionalised consistency we are leading customer-centric conversations. This is enabled through our state-of-the-art IT infrastructure and artificial intelligence-led predictive analytics. We believe branches are key points to acquiring new customers, delivering a best-in-class experience to gain a larger share of wallet, and building customer loyalty. Nearly half of our branches are in semi-urban and rural areas and we are continuously extending the bank’s reach with an endeavour to support inclusive growth.”
