Check Loan Restructuring EligibilityAfter completing OTP validation and providing necessary information, the customer will know their eligibility and receive a reference number. This reference number will be valid for 30 days and within which time customers can visit the SBI branch to complete the required formalities.

Interest will still be charged, & then interest of interest. Don’t fall in debt trap. If you are capable to pay EMI, pay it monthly.
