Allowing employees to use the service before officially launching will allow Reliance to test its network and infrastructure.

Anusham Thakur who is Reliance Jio’s strategy and planning head said, “We have begun live beta trials for Jio Payments Bank. We are also rolling out merchant solutions and the service is seeing good acceptance across offline and online.”

In India, Airtel was first to launch the payments bank service in November 2016 after then Paytmm Payments Bank began operations in May 2017 and the latest of all, Fino Payments Bank started in June 2018.
