India’s largest public lender, State Bank of India (SBI), has announced on social media that internet banking services will be unavailable on December 11 for five hours due to maintenance work.
SBI customers will not be able to use internet banking, YONO, YONO Lite and UPI services for 300 minutes or five hours from 11:30 pm on Saturday to 4:30 am on Sunday due to a technology upgrade.

“We will be undertaking technology upgrade in early morning hours on 11th Dec 2021 from 23:30 hrs to 4:30 hrs (300 minutes). During this period, INB/ Yono / Yono Lite / Yono Business / UPI will be unavailable. We regret the inconvenience and request you to bear with us,” the statement added.

A large number of customers are unlikely to be impacted by the fresh upgrade due to the timing. The earlier maintenance activity was carried out by the public lender in October.
