In mobile banking there are two types of alerts, the “Push” and “Pull”. With “Push alerts”, customers receive Short Messaging Service (SMS) alerts for select transactions as and when they occur. These include salary credit alerts, account debits, account credits, credit card transactions, fixed deposit maturity, and cheque clearances. “Pull alerts”, on the other hand, is a service where specific and up-to-date details are requested, such as account balance, loan outstanding amount, and credit card outstanding balance.
