Paymart has partnered with five prominent banks, including IDBI Bank, Indian Bank, Jammu & Kashmir Bank, and Karur Vyasa Bank, to roll out this service nationwide. The company is also in advanced discussions with four additional banks for further collaboration. "Our future-ready technology, coupled with direct connectivity to banks' Core Banking Systems, positions us as a versatile Cardless Switch, complementing existing card operators and paving the way for a more inclusive and accessible banking ecosystem," Paymart founder and CEO Narang said in a statement.

The startup plans to launch pilot programmes with its partner banks in February/March, with a phased nationwide rollout slated for April/May 2024.

Paymart also said that it entered into a partnership with CSC e-Governance Services India Ltd to further expand the reach of its virtual ATM service.
