SBI ‘Quick Transfer’: For all money transfers via internet banking, generally we have to first register the beneficiary. State Bank of India (SBI) customers can do this without adding the beneficiary. However, there is a limit of Rs 25,000. SBI had introduced ‘Quick Transfer’ facility a few months ago. “Simplify life with the #QuickTransfer service that doesn’t require you to add a beneficiary to #TransferFunds up to ₹25000/- per day (₹10000/- per transaction). Download the SBI Anywhere Personal app and avail of the benefit along with many more,” the bank had tweeted in July this year.
