The Institute for Development and Research in Banking Technology (IDRBT) is a premier Institution focused exclusively on Banking Technology. Established by Reserve Bank of India, the Institute works at the intersection of Banking and Technology, focusing on research and development, which is useful for the Indian Banking and Financial Sector.
The popularity of "App" or "Application Software" has grown tremendously in recent years, with people across nations, irrespective of their age and gender, getting hooked to the "Apps" culture. These apps should facilitate mobility of users.
Indian banks too have been building "Apps", but the requirements of customers and banks may not be met only by the internal teams of banks. Further, "Apps" are an area where there are talented individuals, geeks and small companies, who are working with great passion, and there is a need to tap these apps for the benefit of the banking sector.
Accordingly, in order to provide a big boost to developing "Apps" and bring out the innovations happening in the area of "Apps" which could be useful for the Indian Banking and Financial Sector, the Institute started organising the national level Annual IDRBT Banking Application Contest (IBAC) in 2016. The first IBAC was held on April 11, 2016.
The IBAC aims to serve two key purposes:
