There should be ATM fee of 1000 rupees per transaction. All Indian banks are in a heavy losses and this will help banks to come into profit. SBI is already charging customers 2000 rupees per year as minimum balance charges. In foreign countries when we go they say most Indians have black money and are very very rich. For ATM card we can charge 50000 rupees also and 20000 for cheque books. If cash is not available we can give them tokens like in casinos. more  
The usage of ATM should be made free as it has led to reduction in cost by reducing the requirement of staff & other infrastructure by the bank at branch level. more
