The State Bank of India's net banking, mobile apps YONO and YONO Lite were hit on Thursday due to maintenance activities being carried out by the largest lender of the country. Customers also faced issues in doing transactions through Unified Payments Interface (UPI).
In a tweet, SBI informed that it would be undertaking maintenance activities for its digital platform between 2:10 pm to 5:40 pm on Thursday. "During this period, INB/ YONO /YONO Lite /UPI will be unavailable. We regret the inconvenience caused and request you to bear with us"
We request our esteemed customers to bear with us as we upgrade our digital banking platforms to provide a better online banking experience.April 1, 2021
However, many customers complained on Twitter that they were facing issues even before the scheduled maintenance time.

Not sure why you carry out upgrade during daytime hours. All major IT upgrades/maintenance activities across globe are done post midnight/early morning hours for all major banks, e-commerce, healthcare and other domains.- kumar varun (@kvarunsachdeva) April 1, 2021
आप 2.10pm की बात कर रहे हो 11 बजे से ही काम नहीं कर रहे।- ishwar kumar gurjar🇮🇳 (@ishwarlal98) April 1, 2021
