SBI also have a facility to block the ATM card through SMS.You have to send an sms in the below format to get your ATM card blocked:

On acceptance of the request for blocking, the Card holder shall get a confirmatory SMS alert with ticket number, date and time of blocking.
3. Through call on toll free number:
You may block your card by calling their toll free number
24X7 Toll free Helpline No.18004253800 and 1800112211 and Toll No.08026599990.
4. Visiting at Home Branch:
Alternatively, you may also visit the branch where you hold your account and give a request to send their team your card details from their official email id to block the card.
