Nowadays, it is mandatory to link your phone number with your bank account. If there arises a situation where you need to change your current phone number, you have to update that with your bank as well. In that case, all you have to do is write a letter to the bank manager requesting for a change of mobile number. It should be a formal letter mentioning your account number, phone number and other required information. You should also provide the reason for changing the linked mobile number. You will also have to attach the supporting documents for identity verification.
