Let’s complete the process.
1. Generate SBI Green PIN or OTP to change ATM PIN
As I discussed above, we will need green PIN or one time password to reset SBI ATM PIN. For that purpose, pick any preferred way to request green PIN.
|SBI PIN Generation Method||Format||Number/Steps|
|SMS||PIN<space>Last-4-digits-of-ATM-Card<space>Last-4-digits-of-account-number (Example PIN 1234 5214)||567676|
|Phone||Follow the IVR options and generate SBI PIN||1800112211, 18004253800, 080-26599990 (ISD/STD)|
|Internet Banking||Hover mouse cursor on e-Services and click ATM Card Services. Then choose ATM PIN Generation.||Login to SBI Online|

You have four options for green PIN generation, which are:

Generate Green PIN OTP by sending an SMS
To generate SBI green PIN, account holder can send following SMS ‘PIN<space>Last-4-digits-of-ATM-Card<space>Last-4-digits-of-account-number‘ to 567676.
