SBI said that the services will be restored before noon. However, SBI customers have encountered such issues earlier too.
Many SBI customers took to Twitter, notifying about the technical glitch. YONO SBI app users were also unable to access their accounts.
“Instead of posting on twitter this important notice should have been sent to all customers through SMS,” one user wrote.
Another user wrote, “Can not use online banking website or make payments through any of the UPI apps. Having trouble with SBI since yesterday.”
“Everytime there is techincal issue in your bank…. U should inform us before through sms… If there is an emergency…how that will be sorted,” another user wrote on Twitter.
On October 10, the State Bank of India had informed its customer that SBI Yono will be under maintenance on October 11 and October 13 from 12 pm to 4 pm.
