ICICI & personal cloud storage


I rubbed my eyes twice, when i looked at the ICICI bank mailer.

It was like —- Really?

Looks like ICICI has taken on Microsoft, Google, Amazon’s of the world in providing secure cloud storage for personal use.

Offerings: free 25MB storage for all ICICI customers (currently they allow jpgs & pdfs only)

Similar offerings, first I noticed with a company called PostNord (a Scandinavian postal service) and the name of the service is e-boks . And guess what, PostNord have a tie-up with major government/private agencies to receive Digital documents on the customers’ behalf.

So assuming ICICI goes PostNord’s way this will be the reality

Example: partner  with BSNL, Airtel, BESCOM, MSEB, Aadhar etc., to receive  receipts, bills, documents securely and store it in customers account automatically, saving the customers headache of scanning and/or uploading.

What’s your take on this?

With a trust of ICICI, will you upload your pancards/ebills/property documents on Google docs or ICICI  eSafe?
