Here is how to withdraw cash at SBI ATMs through an OTP-based system
- In order to withdraw cash at SBI ATMs, you will need an OTP
- OTP will be sent to your registered mobile number.
- OTP is a system-generated numeric string of characters that authenticates the user for a single transaction.
- Once you enter the amount that you wish to withdraw, the ATM screen will display the OTP screen.
- Now, you will have to enter the OTP received on your mobile number registered with the bank on this screen for getting the cash.
- This additional factor of authentication will protect State Bank cardholders from unauthorized ATM cash withdrawals.
- The SBI OTP based ATM cash withdrawal facility is available only at SBI ATMs as this functionality has not been developed at non-SBI ATMs in National Financial Switch (NFS), the bank said.
Recently, SBI launched a new facility for debit card users to help curb ATM frauds which have been on the rise. The bank had alerted its customers to be cautious and not to ignore SMS alerts regarding balance inquiries or mini-statement when the request is not initiated by them.
