Now SBI customers can lock/unlock Debit card transactions (online & offline)? If you want to lock your all Debit card-related transactions like ATM withdrawal, online transactions, and POS transactions then you can do it now through SBI Mobile banking and SBI Quick banking.
You can unlock all transactions whenever you want to use your ATM/Debit card. If you have lost your ATM card at home then instead of blocking your Debit card permanently, you can lock your ATM card transactions and when you get back your card, you can unblock transactions.
