SBI ATM PIN Generation at ATM Booth.

Have you got the SBI ATM card that you applied for recently? When you get it, the card needs to be activated. It has been seen multiple times when we try to generate a PIN for the new card, the system sometimes prompts please activate your card. 

Do you know that SBI sends these cards in inactive status just to avoid lending to the wrong hands? The ATM card needs to be activated and it will be done by the bank only. 

So, if such is your case, please go visit the nearest SBI branch and get it activated. Then proceed for PIN generation.

What charges does the bank levy on SBI ATM card? 

There is only an annual maintenance charge. For using a card and activation it’s free of course. 

There will be transaction charges from time to time but it usually depends on how you use your card. Transactions are done on the online platform and other retail outlets are free of transaction charges but if you do a transaction visiting your bank there may be nominal charges. 

SBI savings Bank account does have a limited number of transactions in a month. If it goes beyond that charges may apply. It does not include online transactions and transactions induced by ATM cards online and other retail outlets.

There could be many reasons for that. To find out why it is happening, you need to fix certain issues with your account.
