SMS Banking

Your account balances and more at your fingertips. SMS Banking also gives you a head start and sends you alerts so that you stay informed.

Money management at your fingertips

When you need to access important information about your account quickly and easily, your mobile phone steps right in immediately. Simply send a text (SMS) to 8701 and perform simple banking operations, whenever you need it. 


No need to find a branch or ATM to:

  • Check your account balance
  • See your last five transactions
  • Perform transfers between MCB accounts

And, receive SMS Alerts to stay up-to-date with your account transactions. 


Rates: For each SMS you send to 8701, 50 cents will be charged to your bank account on top of your telephone operator's normal SMS fees - Emtel Rs. 1.00 (post-paid) & Rs 1.10 (prepaid) / my.t Rs. 1.10 (post-paid et prepaid) / MTML Rs. 0.50 (post-paid et prepaid).

SMS Alerts will be sent when:

  • Your salary is credited to your account
  • Your term deposit reaches maturity
  • Your standing order has failed
  • Your direct debit has failed 
For each SMS Alert you receive, Rs. 1 will be charged to your account.
