    Debit Card PIN generation

    Now customers can generate their ATM Card PIN through an SMS. Send SMS from registered mobile number in new format like

    PIN CCCCAAAA to xxxxx (SMS number)

    Where CCCC is the last 4 digits of the debit card number and AAAA is the last 4 digits of the Account Number.

    OTP will be sent on your registered mobile phone number. OTP must be used to change Debit Card PIN at any ATM within 2 days as OTP will be valid for 2 days only. Recommended to be done within 24 hours.

    Customers can block the debit card linked to the registered account in case of loss/theft. To block the debit card, one needs to send an SMS from the registered mobile number as ‘BLOCK<space>XXXX’ to SMS number (XXXX represents the last 4 digits of the card number).

    On acceptance of the request for blocking, you will get a confirmatory SMS alert that contains the ticket number, date, and time of blocking. Please note that debit cards can also be blocked through the following means:

    · By calling Bank Contact Centre.

    Customers can now control their debit card channels of usage by sending an SMS from their registered mobile number. One can choose to activate/deactivate usage at ATM, POS, E-Commerce, International and Domestic sites.

    This means you can carry your debit card without any tension. The moment you feel to use it, you may send an SMS to Switch on the debit card. Once the transaction completes, one may Switch it off immediately.

    For example -

    · SWON POS XXXX to activate POS usage

    · SWON ATM XXXX to switch on the ATM usage

    · SWON INTL XXXX to activate international usage

    · SWON ECOM XXXX to activate debit cards on the eCommerce website.

    · SWOFF ECOM XXXX to deactivate debit cards on the eCommerce website.

    On acceptance of the request for activation/deactivation, the customer will get a confirmatory SMS alert that contains the reference number, date, and time of the request.

    ATM Card usage can also be controlled.

    These are new socially important developments in digital banking.
