How to register and update mobile number with your SBI savings account
It is always good to have your mobile number registered with your bank account(s). Not only will it help you keep a track of all the transactions that have taken place, you will also get to know immediately when an unauthorised transaction takes place in your bank account(s).
If you have not registered your mobile number with your State Bank of India (SBI) savings account, here is how you can do it.
REGISTRATION FOR THE FIRST TIME
If you do not have your mobile number registered with your bank account, then you can do the same either by visiting the home branch or an SBI ATM.
Here’s how you can register your mobile number by visiting an SBI ATM:
1. Swipe your card and from the menu choose the ‘Registration’ option.
2. Enter your ATM PIN.
3. Select mobile number registration option.
4. Enter the mobile number you want to register. Select ‘correct’ option if you have entered correct number.
5. Re-enter your mobile number and select ‘correct’ option. Once you do this, this message will appear on the ATM screen: “Thank you for registering your mobile number with us”. Within three days, you will receive a call from the contact centre.
6. A reference number will be sent to your mobile number via SMS.
As per SBI call centre, within three days you will receive a call from the contact centre. For the sake of safety, ask the call centre person to quote the reference number. Continue with the call only if it matches the reference number you received by you via SMS.
Once this is done, you will have to verify your personal details, and then your mobile number will be registered in your bank account. You will receive an SMS from the bank confirming the same.
