The product is based on the guidelines of Kisan Credit Card guidelines

 The key benefits of the card are as follows:

 Speaking at the launch, Puri said, “It’s an absolute honour to launch this product for the armed forces and their families. Coming from an Air Force family, I have seen from close quarters the sacrifices they make and hardships they go through – the personnel on duty and their families back home. I feel like my career is complete now that we’re able to do something for them. With this, we have an equally good product for armed forces brethren as we have for farmers. This is our Independence Day gift to our protectors. Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan, Jai Hind.”
