However, customers kept complaining that the SBI online services and YONO app were yet to be restored.

SBI's online portal was down from Monday morning and the customers were unable to carry out the transactions. SBI's YONO app users were also affected due to the glitch.

Several SBI customers took to Twitter, informing the bank about the technical problem with the screenshots of the same. When the users tried to repeat the log-in, the app extended the waiting period. SBI's website pages were also not loading.

When SBI restored its online services, the bank started replying individually to the users on Twitter with a reply, "Dear Customer, we regret the inconvenience caused. We are working on it and will be back soon. Thanks for bearing with us."

Enraged over the delay in restoring the services quickly, the customers even drew the attention of Prime Minister's Office (PMO) and Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman as well to the issue.

One customer, Abhinay, tweeted that none of the bank's application was accessible from 9 am.

Another customer in Kalyan near Thane, tweeted on Sunday, "I wanted to withdraw cash through yono app. But I failed."

The SBI came out with statement of regrets and said that due to some technical issue, YONO app was under maintenance mode. It further said that the issue would be resolved soon.
