As per the RBI guidelines, the withdrawal limit from PoS machines at retail outlets in Tier 1 and 2 cities per card per day is Rs 1,000 and Rs 2,000 for smaller towns. "For withdrawals up to Rs 2000, @TheOfficialSBI has cash@POS facility @ 4.78 lac POS machines.”
"Customer can use SBI & any other bank debit card to withdraw cash up to Rs 1,000 in Tier 3 to 6 & up to Rs 1,000 in Tier 1 & 2 cities per card per day presently without any charges," said Neeraj Vyas, DMD (chief operating officer) of SBI in a tweet.
