In terms of assets, SBI joined the league of top 50 global banks post the merger of BMB and five erstwhile associate banks, namely, State Bank of Bikaner & Jaipur (SBBJ), State Bank of Mysore (SBM), State Bank of Travancore (SBT), State Bank of Patiala (SBP), State Bank of Hyderabad (SBH).
The website address after the merger of your bank (SBH/SBP/SBM/SBT/SBBJ) with SBI is https://www.onlinesbi.com, according to SBI's website. The net banking features of associate banks are almost similar to those of SBI. There is no need you to register your mobile number afresh if your bank merged with SBI.
However, there is a change in NEFT/ RTGS charges. Service charges as applicable for SBI customers are applicable for customers of associate banks.
