Ways to get a debit card reissued or replaced in case you lose it

In the era of digital payments, Debit Cards have become irreplaceable. Hence, banks have made it simple for their customers to apply for reissue of ATM or Debit card – whether it is lost, stolen, or damaged. If you have lost your debit card, the first thing to do is call the customer care right away and block your card to avoid tampering and misuse. Once the card is blocked, you can apply for reissue of cards. You can request for reissuing of cards through net banking, mobile banking, customer care or branch visit. There are following ways to get debit card reissued or replaced in case you lose it i.e.:

1.Through net banking

Banks offer net banking facilities which allows users to do more than just fund transfer or credit card payment. Login to your respective bank website and open the cards section. In the service request section, locate the card that needs replacement and select to make a reissue ATM Card application. Banks accept the request and dispatch a new card to the registered mailing address within a couple of working days.

2.Through Mobile Banking

In case you do not have access to Net Banking, you can use the bank’s phone/mobile banking facility. Every bank’s mobile application allows users to submit a card reissue request. Just log in to the bank’s respective mobile app and select cards from the menu section. Click on service request from the cards section after identifying the specific card number for replacement.

3.Through customer care

If you are not comfortable using either Net Banking or mobile apps to raise these requests, you can reach out to your bank’s customer care helpline number and speak to a customer service executive to register a reissue card application. Once your request is logged in by the customer care team, the new card is issued and will be dispatched directly to your registered mailing address.

4.Through branch visit

If none of the above-mentioned methods suits you and you are near the bank branch, you can just visit the bank branch and submit an application for a replacement of your debit card in person. As soon as your request is processed, you can collect the card from the branch or request for it to be delivered to your mailing address.
