New delhi: Crediting demonetisation for the biggest push towards digital banking, SBI on Monday said it envisions the entire range of banking services going digital over the next few years. “Demonetisation is the biggest push.

The biggest beneficiary is digital banking,” State Bank of India MD Rajnish Kumar said at the two-day Inclusive Finance India Summit here.
