Are your SBI Debit cardholders? Then this news is important to you. India's largest public sector bank State Bank of India (SBI) has issued an advisory to its customers to replace their Magnetic Stripe Debit cards with new EMV (Europay, Mastercard, and Visa) Chip and PIN-based SBI Debit Card. The bank will deactivate those Magnetic Stripe debit cards by December 31. This means SBI customers need to apply for a new EMV chip and PIN-based card by December 31.

SBI has set December 31 as the deadline for its customers to apply for a free-of-cost replacement of their "Magstripe" stripe card to avail a new EMV (Europay, Mastercard, and Visa) chip and PIN-based card, the country's largest bank by assets said on Twitter. 

The bank has tweeted, “Apply now to change your Magnetic Stripe Debit Cards to the more secure EMV Chip and PIN-based SBI Debit card at your home branch by 31st December 2019. Safeguard yourself with guaranteed authenticity, greater security for online payments and added security against fraud.”

Those SBI customers fail to apply for a replacement of Magstripe debit cards by the due date, their cards will be deactivated by the bank.

"In view of the continuing frauds on Magnetic Stripe Cards, it is proposed to deactivate these cards by 31.12.2019 (irrespective of the validity period of the card). In case any SBI customer has not received the new EMV Chip card, they are requested to approach his/her home branch," the bank said.
