4) Once the necessary verification is done by the bank, you will get an SMS from the bank on your registered mobile number regarding the same.

SBI offers seven types of ATM-cum-debit cards to its customers. Depending upon the variant of the card, the daily cash withdrawal limit ranges from ₹20,000 to ₹1 lakh.
In September last year, SBI had informed credit and debit cardholders that if they make international transactions and want to continue the services, then they will have to send a message on a given number. As per RBI’s new rules for debit and credit cards, banks will have to offer customers a facility to activate online transactions, international or overseas transactions and contactless transactions. The services will not be activated till the users enable them.
