Did you know that you can recharge your mobile using your SBI debit card by a simple SMS?
You may well have recharged your mobile using the ATM’s but other users standing behind you may have been screaming at you seeing the time it takes to recharge using the ATM machine. But from now, you don’t have to worry about the screams.
For this to happen you first have to register once at any State Bank ATM and from then you simply have to send an SMS to get your recharge done.
By this way you can recharge Vodafone, Idea, Reliance, Airtel and BPL prepaid mobiles without paying any extra charge.
If you are an Airtel subscriber, the SMS/ATM recharge facility is available in 11 circles across India viz., Mumbai, Delhi, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, UP (East and West), MP, Gujarat, Tamilnadu and Chennai.
You must send the SMS as follows (only after registering once by visiting any ATM):
Airtel – Type RC<space>amount<space>PIN and send it to 535.
For example Type RC 141 xxxx and send it to 535
BPL – Type RC<space>SBI<space>amount<space>PIN and send it to 140.
Vodafone – Type RC<space>SBI<space>amount<space>PIN and send it to 147.
Idea – Type RC<space>SBI<space>amount<space>PIN and send it to 575.
