Aimed towards making the money transfer process more simple, this facility allows a person to transfer funds.

Nitin Gupta, GM South Asia, MasterCard Worldwide said, "These transfers can be made by using ATM, branch banking, Internet or mobile phones to account holder of any bank. There is an instant verification after the transaction is completed using MoneySend. The whole process is entirely safe and transparent as the funds are transferred from one bank account to another."

However, this service is not free and Rs. 20 will be charged for transactions involving funds up to Rs.25,000, Rs.30 will be charged if the amount transferred lies between Rs.25,000 to Rs.50,000. There is an upper limit of Rs. 50,000 to the amount that can be transferred during a day using MoneySend.

With the SBI network spanning over 5,500 ATMs and 9,177 branches, besides over 3,500 branches of its subsidiaries, SBI is totally equipped to offer this service to its large consumer base.
