SBI Positive Pay: Positive Pay is a concept that entails reconfirming critical data on large-value checks. The issuer of the cheque provides some minimal details of the cheque like date, name of the beneficiary/payee, amount, etc. to the drawee bank via electronic channels such as SMS, mobile app, online banking, ATM, and so on, which are then cross-checked with the presented cheque by CTS.
State Bank of India (SBI) customers who wish to use the service must first register their cheque-operated accounts for the Positive Pay System through one of our branches by submitting an application in the prescribed format. There are additional channels available for registration, including Mobile Banking (YonoLite), Retail Internet Banking (RINB), Corporate Internet Banking (CINB), and YONO (Mobile App).
According to the SBI website, “ Customers need to select an account level limit for registration. This can be any amount depending on customers’ risk perception. However, Bank is planning to make Positive Pay System mandatory for Savings Bank account cheques of Rs.5 lakhs & above and all other account types (Current Account/Cash Credit/Overdraft) cheques of Rs.10 lakhs & above. As such, once the mandatory clauses are made effective, the maximum account level limits which can be selected would be the amounts mentioned above. All the registrations already made above the mandatory limits would be brought down to the mandatory level on the effective date.”
