The IMPS service is available 24x7, including holidays.

Also, transfers from Rs 1 lakh to Rs 2 lakh will attract a charge of Rs 15 plus applicable GST, according to SBI.

GST subsumes more than a dozen state and central levies including service tax. Therefore, many banks including State Bank of India have revised their charges in the context of GST. Under the new GST regime, banking and financial services will attract tax at the rate of 18 per cent.

In another post on Twitter, SBI has said that GST will remove the cascading effect of tax on the cost of goods and services, and production costs will decrease.

Earlier this year, SBI joined the league of global top 50 banks after merging its operations with five associate banks and Bharatiya Mahila Bank. On April 1, State Bank of Bikaner and Jaipur (SBBJ), State Bank of Mysore (SBM), State Bank of Travancore (SBT), State Bank of Patiala (SBP) and State Bank of Hyderabad (SBH) became part of SBI.
