In a delighting move, the Reserve Bank of India has permitted banks to have ties with eCommerce companies while acting as a banking correspondent.

“Banks will have to take cognizance of eCommerce the way it is galloping,” said RBI deputy governor H R Khan.

“Banks will see there is competition and opportunity for cooperation as well with eCommerce firms. We will have to see how we provide a platform between eCommerce and banks,” added Khan.
