  • State Bank of India’s (SBI) mobile banking services have been down for over an hour.
  • The outage is occurring on a day that branches are closed for business since its the first day of the new financial year.
  • Normally, the bank issues a warning if servers are going to be down for maintenance but there was no advance notice this time around.
Customers of India’s biggest bank, the State Bank of India (SBI), are facing issues while trying to push through online transactions. Users are unable to log into the bank’s flagship mobile app, YONO, nor are they able to push through payments using the Unified Payments Interface (UPI).

The bank did issue a notice on Twitter on March 31, and again at 11:30 am today, that its services will be down between 2:10 pm to 5:40 pm today, however that does not account for the current outage that users are facing.


Normally, if the servers are down for maintenance, the bank sends out a message to its users that digital services will be unavailable during a specified period of time. However, this time around there was no warning.

The outage is also occurring on a day SBI’s branches are closed for business since it's the first day of the financial year.

SBI is yet to issue an official statement on why the YONO app and other methods of mobile banking are facing an outage. The bank is yet to respond to Business Insider India’s request for clarification on the issue.
