Lack of sight is no longer an obstacle to getting a credit card. Punjab National Bank has launched a special credit card scheme for the visually impaired, which requires applicants to have maintained a bank account for over 6 months and a good track record. Credit card transactions will be communicated via a voice-enabled mobile phone, which the applicant must possess. The PNB has formulated this scheme in response to the Reserve Bank of India’s advice to banks to make all banking facilities available to visually challenged individuals.
