Customers can easily access this innovative offering through multiple channels, including the bank’s website, branches, SME centers, and internet platforms.

Moreover, SBI plans to enhance accessibility further by introducing QR codes at all its Customer Service Point (CSP) partner touchpoints and outdoor locations in the near future.

Streamlined Loan Application

To apply for a loan under this scheme, customers need to provide details such as financial statements, transaction history, and GST returns. This streamlined process ensures efficiency and transparency.

SBI’s Commitment to Innovation

Dinesh Khara, Chairman of SBI, expressed the bank’s dedication to setting new industry standards with the SME digital business loan. This initiative reflects SBI’s ongoing efforts to foster innovation in MSME lending.

Beyond Digitalization

SBI’s focus on MSMEs extends beyond the SME Digital Business Loan. The bank is also digitizing the Mudra product

and automating the collateral-free loan process under the Credit Guarantee Fund Trust for Micro and Small Enterprises (CGTMSE) cover.
