The State Bank of India is one of the leading financial institutes in the nation. The bank has been the biggest name in the country’s banking system, and has brought forward many innovations to the way things are done. Banking as a whole has now been taken online, and the SBI Online Internet banking services are among the top names in that. The SBI Online internet banking allows the users to perform a diverse range of actions, and helps them save a lot of time.
Users no longer need to go to banks for basic things, and it saves the time of both, the users as well as the bankers. When it comes to things that the users can do from home, transferring money is one of them. Now when it comes to transferring money, there are broadly two kinds of people you can transfer money to – accounts in SBI, and accounts outside SBI. For those who need to transfer to accounts outside SBI, they need to add an ‘inter-bank beneficiary’ to their account which we have explained in a separate article. However, let us now take a look at those who need to transfer money to those who hold an account in SBI.
