  • Sir,
    I am stationed in Gujarat. My PDA (SBI) is at Bangalore. I draw my pension through DEBIT CARD. I am 75 years of age. The ATM withdrawal amount is insufficient to meet the both ends. Kindly suggest how to go about.

  • You can present your SELF / BEARER at par cheque any SBI branch and draw Rs.12000 at a time and twice per week totalling Rs.24000 per week.
