To send money using NEFT or RTGS, first, you’ll need to add a beneficiary and before you send money, you will need to wait for beneficiary approval from your bank, which sometimes takes hours. But what if you want to send money quickly to loved one or someone in need? And you don’t have time for beneficiary approval? Answer is use ‘SBI Quick Transfer’ facility which lets you transfer money without adding beneficiary.
