So I received this email from ICICI where they said they will no longer be sending us printed ICICI credit card statements. I personally think it is lame that they don’t want to send a single page that contains something our chartered accountants ask on a regular basis. On one hand, ICICI bank asks for everything in written from customers and take our billions of printed pages in their banks everyday – resulting in cutting of hundreds of trees everyday. Talk about cutting their costs and increasing their profits.
Here is the email I received:
