By switching to BaaS through APIs, tech-savvy banks like ICICI Bank are embracing Open Banking and transforming the traditional banking landscape in India. Check out this post to know how businesses and developers can incorporate the APIs offered by ICICI Bank in simple steps.
While Open Banking is already an established practice in countries like Europe, India is the latest country to embrace this initiative. It involves banks providing access to their core customer data to 3rd party financial service providers through Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).
ICICI Bank is at the forefront of this API platform focus on Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS) initiative to significantly transform the banking scenario in the country. Apart from financial service providers, ICICI Bank has also opened its API banking portal to developers where they can build, test, and integrate new APIs.

Enter the OTP and proceed to select a Username and Password for the ICICI Bank Developer Portal. ICICI Bank will then review your application.
2. Get the API keys
All the APIs, either the ones offered by ICICI Bank or developed by you, will have an associated API Key. This key is a unique code or identifier for authenticating the calling program of the API. It is with the help of these keys that the APIs are tracked, and their unauthorised use is prevented.
