  6. wiil they deduct yearly charges after card blocking

  7. No. SBI deducts charges only for active cards.

  8. how to get again the unique ticket number.. as i lost it... What is the use of it?

  9. Unique Ticket number is like acknowledgement of your request by Bank. Even if you lost it, it does not mean SBI would stop acting on your request. Since your request has already been fed into the system, it is bound to be resolved.

    You should however note down the ticket number as it will act a proof that you have informed the Bank about the loss of card.
