In the newly formed joint venture company, SBI will hold 51 per cent stake and Bharti Airtel the balance.

This joint venture will bring together the commitment of the two institutions, which will enable the bank reaching out to every Indian leveraging the distribution network of Airtel to provide banking services,'' SBI Chairman O. P. Bhatt said.

The joint venture as business correspondent will engage Airtel's retailers as customer service points (CSPs) across the country in a phased manner.

With this joint venture, the existing, new Airtel and other mobile customers will be able to visit these outlets and open new SBI bank accounts and avail themselves of other banking products and services available at the CSPs.

Additionally, the existing SBI customers will get serviced at these outlets. This partnership represents a first-of-its kind collaboration, aimed at making the concept of inclusive banking a reality for customers in India.
