The study has further identified and analyzed the usage pattern of Indian customers for mobile banking/online banking services in the pre-pandemic phase and progression of Indian customers for mobile banking/online banking services during the pandemic. Secondary data has been used for deep understanding of the AI adoption in Indian banking industry, with reports from McKinsey, PWC, RBI, NPCI, BIS, etc., to form the base.

With 2020–21 punctuated by several nationwide as well as localized lockdowns adoption of AI for customer engagement has been crucial for Indian banking industry, which has further translated in to designing and customizing products and risk profiling of customers further resulting in increased operational efficiency and intuitive decision making. The behavioral change induced by COVID-19 in the Indian baking industry achieves competitive advantage by truly responding to huge customer data base which has been utilized by other financial industries as now it can have systems which understand and are responsive to behavior of varied customers. From responses feeded chatbots to intuitively responsive AI bots, the customer engagement is going to be a whole new experience which will help in customer acquisition and retention. Further, with falling data storage costs, increasing processing speeds and capabilities and improved connectivity and access for all has helped the rapid automation and AI adoption. Enterprise level adoption of AI has led to revenue generation and optimization of functional resources this reducing the cost at functional level. The AI adoption has been continuous from the banks over the years though banks have started to harness its potential in the recent years with customers adoption of smart hand-held devices. © The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd. 2023.
