Most likely scam or some marketing call. Once sbi card agent called me for limit increase over phone for which he just asked by basic personal details like DOB & Mother’s name which is anyway required at any official customer care call for verification before doing anything important.

Report it to customer care and get clarification. Also you can check what parameters are required to change password option.
Please put dual authentication wherever possible

Definitely fraud. No bank calls you to ask you to redeem your reward points. Even if they call, all they will ask is your consent, not card details. Most banks don’t want you to redeem reward points, especially those which have expiry date on reward points. Wouldn’t it be in their favor only if you forget and your reward points lapse. 😂

So in this case of yours, chances are they already have your card number and only need other details including otp. If you give them, boom, transaction is done.

And in case you have a doubt, give them some wrong expiry date. If they’re genuine and only verifying, chances of which are anyway zero, they’ll tell you that the date is wrong.

OTP not needed for international transactions
