What is SBI's Green PIN Initiative?

When issuing debit or credit cards, most banks, both public and private, issue a PIN that allows the card to be used at ATMs and POS terminals. PIN mailers have been the most prevalent distribution method since banks began providing debit or credit card PINs. Scratch-off panels on the mailers conceal the PIN number and assist in revealing any tampering efforts.

PIN mailers are often sent via postal service or courier to the cardholder's address. Some banks have recently begun providing PINs directly to consumers by including them in the welcome package.

If a cardholder has to update his or her PIN for whatever reason, he or she needs to visit the bank's branch and submit an ATM PIN regeneration request.

Even while using PIN mailers to deliver an ATM or debit card PIN is the most popular banking practice, it comes with its own set of risks and fees.

Bank staff must keep physical possession of ATM PINs, postal delivery may be delayed, banks must send a new PIN if the PIN mailer is broken or tampered with during transit, banks must pay extra postal and stationery costs, and clients must visit bank locations for PIN regeneration.
