"In addition..., YONO will also allow customers to meet their lifestyle needs across 14 categories including booking and renting cabs, entertainment, dining experience, travel and stay, medical needs and so on," it said.

To provide the customised offers and discounts, SBI has partnered with e-commerce players including Amazon, Uber, Ola, Myntra, Jabong, Shoppers Stop, Cox & Kings, Thomas Cook, Yatra, Airbnb, Swiggy and Byjus, it said.

The SBI said the product employs the latest digital technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), predictive analytics and machine learning, and can be accessed through a mobile application and web portal.
