It’s very easy to activate your Open card. 

Once you receive your card kit, you’d need to go to your Cards section on the left-hand side panel and click on ‘Activate Your Card’.

Once you do that, you can fill in the details that’s being asked to activate your card, viz., 

  1. Last 4 digits of your card

  2. KIT number

  3. PAN card number and then upload an image/PDF of the same

  4. Address proof (Driving license, Passport or Voters card) and then upload an image/PDF of the same

Once you do that, just click on ‘Activate Card’ and it will be activated immediately.

FYI: PAN card is mandatory for ID proof. For address proof, you can provide any of the following: Driving License, Aadhaar Card, Passport, Voter ID, NREGA Job and/or State Utility bills.

P.S.: Just FYI. You can swipe the card at any POS machine but you would need to wait for 30 minutes to do online transactions.
