SBI (State Bank of India) offers instant money transfer facilities such as IMPS and NEFT. IMPS or Immediate Payment Service is an instant payment service that enables round-the-clock money transfer through the use of mobile app, mobile banking or internet banking. NEFT or National Electronic Funds Transfer works on a deferred net settlement basis, where transactions are settled in batches, according to State Bank of India’s internet banking portal, onlinesbi.com. SBI, the country’s largest lender, also charges a certain amount from their customers for NEFT and IMPS transactions.
