The State Bank of India (SBI) intends to amend its online transaction regulations for IMPS, NEFT, and RTGS transfers. SBI has doubled the limit on its IMPS (Immediate Payment Service) transactions, which will take effect in February 2022.

As a result of this change, SBI account holders can now conduct transactions of up to Rs.5 lakh instead of Rs.2 lakh. 

In addition, SBI has declared in an official statement that it would not levy any service charges on digital IMPS transactions up to Rs.5 lakh (for example, internet banking, mobile banking, and YONO).
