SBI sending master cards and blocking access to Maestro cards
SBI sent me a Master ATM-Cum-Debit Card. It is a 16 digit card and have a 3 digit CVV number on the back side of it. Now all the new SBI users are getting this card. This is international card. But the previous card that has stopped working for me, it was a Maestro card with no CVV number and it had 19 digits. SBI is replacing Maestro cards with Master cards.
