If a person loses his or her SBI ATM-cum-debit card, it's a smart option to get the card disabled so that no money is taken out of the account. Customers of the State Bank of India (SBI) can block their SBI ATM/debit card via phone calls, SMS, internet banking, and the SBI Quick mobile application.

You can block an SBI debit card in the following ways:

Via SMS

Send an SMS to 567676 from your registered mobile number with the text 'BLOCKspace>last four digits of the card'.

Via IVR system

  • Call on 1800 112 211 

  • Press 2 to block the SBI card.

  • To block the card, enter the last 5 digits of the account number.

  • Your card will be successfully blocked, and you will receive an SMS confirmation to your registered cellphone number.

Via SBI’s Online Portal

  • Use your username and password to log in to www.onlinesbi.com.

  • Under the "e-Services" menu, click the "ATM Card Services>Block ATM Card" option

  • Choose the account where you want to block your ATM or Debit Card.

  • A list of all active and blocked cards will be shown. The first four and last four digits of the card will be displayed.

  • Click "Submit" after selecting the Card you want to block. Verify and confirm the information.

  • Select SMS OTP or Profile Password as the means of authentication.

  • On the next screen, type in the OTP password/Profile password that you chose before and click "Confirm."
