Each bank schedules maintenance work on a regular or monthly basis to improve digital banking services. Banks hire professionals to carry out the maintenance work, and before doing so, they post a notice on their social media channels about the scheduled shutdowns and the resulting suspension of online banking services. The State Bank of India (SBI) will do the same tomorrow.
