  • Indian Bank Green Pin Generation

    Since decades banks have been using PIN mailers, which hide the PIN number with scratch-off panels, to deliver debit card or credit card PINs to the customers.

    Green PIN is an eco-friendly and customer convenient alternative to the traditional PIN mailers. Using the green PIN feature, customers can generate/regenerate their debit card or credit card PINs on their own.

    Following the tradition, Indian bank also introduced the Green PIN concept to generate both debit card and credit card PINs.

    While new credit card or debit card holders can use the green PIN to set a new PIN, existing card holders can use the feature to regenerate a duplicate PIN, in case, they forget or lost the existing one.
