State Bank of India's (SBI) flagship mobile banking application, YONO, has been facing issues for the past few days, with customers raising their concerns on social media. In a tweet on Thursday, the bank said that the mobile banking app has been impacted by a system outage and that necessary steps were being taken to restore services. One of the banks' customers tweeted that they could not access the app for the past two days, nor could they log on to their internet banking account. Another customer said, via Twitter, that they could not make payments through the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) because of the slowdown on the network. Others also said that UPI services on third-party apps were also down since the bank was facing server issuers. Several complaints also pointed out that the app had thrown up an error code "M005: Cannot process now. Please try again later" on the screen when they had tried to log in. “Steps are being take for restoration of uninterrupted service. We regret the inconvenience caused and request customers to use OnlineSBI and YONO Lite for their banking needs," the bank said.
