We introduce the concepts of the prime m-bi ideal and their associated types in the semigroups. Different characterizations of the semigroups using these m-bi ideals are presented. The forms of the topologies induced by the prime and strongly prime m-bi ideals in the semigroups are also explored. The result shows that either both the conditions of m-regularity and m-intraregularity or existence of pairwise comaximal m-bi ideals in a semigroup is necessary for strongly prime m-bi ideals to induce a topology; whereas the existence of pairwise comaximal m-bi ideals is necessary for the prime m-bi ideals to induce topology on the semigroups. We concluded that the prime m-bi ideals are as important to study the semigroups as the prime bi ideals.
