As far as we are aware, the Rs. 20,000 limit is only applicable to Classic and Maestro debit cards (EMV or otherwise) on cash withdrawals from ATMs. To get a higher withdrawal limit, you can apply for SBI's other cards. Digital transactions do not have a cap, so POS payments shouldn't be an issue.

It's really simple. If your card has a small golden chip on one of its faces, it is an EMV chip card. If it does not have the golden chip, it is a magnetic stripe card.

The time take to get a replacement card will be as per SBI's standard card issuance norms. Normally, it takes 7-8 days to dispatch a new card. However, you should receive the replacement card within two weeks at most. You can always put in a request for early dispatch, if there's an urgent requirement.
