The State Bank of India (SBI) has changed its ATM withdrawal rules from July 1. According to the bank's website, SBI in metro cities allows its regular savings account holders to make 8 free transactions in a month. In addition, customers are charged on each transaction. A customer can make 8 free transactions from his savings account every month. These include free transactions from 5 SBI ATMs and 3 ATMs of any other bank. There are 10 free ATM transactions in non-metro cities, in which 5 transactions can be done from SBI, while 5 from ATMs of other banks. If the transaction fails, the bank will charge more than Rs. 20 GST due to a lack of adequate money in the account.
SBI ATM Cash Withdrawal through OTP:
From SBI ATM, you can safely withdraw cash of more than Rs. 10,000. The new facility was introduced on January 1, 2020. Customers can withdraw cash at all SBI ATMs with the help of a one-time password (OTP) from 8 am to 8 pm. Recently SBI has given its customers some ways to secure transactions. In addition, the bank also explained how its money can be kept safe.

- Look for spy cameras before starting your transaction.
