Federal Bank, India’s leading Private Sector Bank today announced a strategic alliance with OneCard and launched a mobile -first Credit Card that aims to provide a seamless digital experience to the young, tech-savvy population across the country.  With OneCard, Federal Bank will target the young working professionals between 23-35 years,primarily representing the millennials and Gen Z.  This digitally native cohort is open to experimenting with new apps and have considerable disposable income.
