Both ways you can try to activate SBI netbanking. It is a simple yet powerful tool for your financial dealings. 

While registering you will get an option for choosing transaction right. There will be three options.

  • Viewing Right: The user will be able to see transactions and can download statements of accounts, and interest certificates. No transaction can be done at this point.
  • Limited Transaction Right: In addition to viewing rights, the user will be able to transact a few limited transactions such as transfer to own account and opening of e-TDR/STDR.
  • Full Transaction Right: This is the full fledge internet banking of SBI where you can literally perform all sorts of transactions.

So, select carefully as per your requirement. Note that you can change the transaction right later on. If you choose for only viewing right, that’s perfectly fine.

Get used to it and when you are comfortable enough, change to full transaction right. Just in case you are very new to online banking.
