SBI Quick Transfer: Limit, Charges and Timings

India is trying to move away from cash transactions and it is trying hard to move towards a cashless economy. Every citizen of India is trying hard to adapt to these changes but the fact is that the technology and the regulations play a bigger role in this case.

A person needs a quick technology which is easy to understand, this will eventually promote cashless transactions. The government also contributed a lot by announcing several new incentive schemes which encouraged people to adapt to the cashless transactions.

There is certain scenario when a person can’t pay through a debit card or a credit card and in such a case he needs to transfer the money to someone’s bank account. Digital wallets definitely help a lot in these case but they are not widely accepted.

In such a case, the only option that a person is left with is to register the person as a beneficiary in his savings account and transfer the money to him. But the problem here is that the process can take long. Banks like Axis Bank has a provision where a person needs to wait 8 hours before the transfer can be made. SBI had always been a leader in the banking industry and it is one of the largest public sector banks in India. SBI recently introduced something called as Quick Transfer.

The quick transfer is quite helpful for the transfer procedure as it eliminates the need of registering the user through ‘the add beneficiary‘ process. This definitely saves time and at the same time, this also helps in making the process quick because the user doesn’t need to wait for the registration to complete. The user can transfer the money immediately without having to wait for an hour.

The quick transfer can be done through the application as well as the website. Both the channels are really convenient to use and it just takes about a couple of minutes to transact through these mediums.
