SBI asks customers to register their mobile numbers with the bank in order to continue internet banking services
New Delhi, Oct 15 (KNN) The State Bank of India has asked its customers to register their mobile numbers with the bank by December 1, 2018. The accounts without registered mobile numbers will not be liable to avail internet banking services from December 1, 2018.
SBI, the biggest lender in India, alerted its clientele to register their mobile numbers with their home branch to continue using the internet banking services.
SBI quoted on its official website, "Attention INB users, please register your mobile number with us immediately, if not already done, through Branch, failing which the Internet Banking facility may be blocked with effect from 01.12.2018."
The notice by SBI stipulates that customers will have to register their mobile numbers through branch, which means that they will have to visit their home branch to have their mobile numbers registered, if not done already.
A circular issued by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) mandates that banks must mandatorily ask their customers to register for SMS alerts as well as e-mail alerts, if an e-mail ID is available for banking transactions.
