This function will be replaced by e-stamping and e-signature with the introduction of e-BG.
In a statement, the State Bank of India stated that this service will bring about a revolutionary transformation in the financial sector, where bank guarantees are routinely used in huge quantities. The bank currently issues these assurances with physical stamping and wet signatures.
