ING MasterCard Premium Debit Cards will have three new card variants – Titanium, My World and World Exclusive, with all the three variants offering premium features.
Shailendra Bhandari, MD & CEO, ING Vysya Bank said, “Indian customers are using their debit cards to shop, debit spends are increasing by 38%. Surprisingly however, Indian customers redeem only 18% of their reward points. We wanted to change that by pampering our customers with a great rewards program, make it easy to earn points and even easier to redeem the points for guaranteed rewards. I am happy to launch the ING Premium Debit range and look forward to further strengthening our decade long relationship with MasterCard. ”
Ari Sarker, division president, South Asia, MasterCard Worldwide said, “We are delighted to partner with ING Vysya Bank to launch this range of Premium debit cards. MasterCard is committed to providing better benefits and privileges to cardholders and hence giving them greater value for their spends.

We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with ING and to many other such innovative products in the future”.”
