Charges on ATM Transactions
1. Why does someone go to an ATM from different bank?
a. Many banks have very limited number of ATMs.
b. The ATM of your own bank is not functioning.
c. The money in ATM has exhausted or not refilled in time.
2. Why do people require multiple transactions?
d. ATMs most of the times do not allow above a certain limit mostly because they have
limitations on number of notes and they refill with lower denominations.
e. ATMs do not have enough money to be disbursed.
f. ATMs do not allow withdrawal their complete authorised amount. For e.g. many
ICICI bank debit cards allow cash withdrawal of Rs. 1Lakh but mostly restrict to 20
In all such cases people are forced to go for multiple transactions due to fault on account of banks. Why should they be punished for it? This way banks will further be emboldened to use similar tactics to force people to go for multiple transactions? In addition many customers especially the youth want to withdraw only the amount immediately required by them. This will unnecessarily put burden on the segment which government other keeps subsidising for.
Here is a quick summary of everyone's inputs:
1. RBI is protecting the Banks rather than the public
2. It is a usual practice from the corporates – start a service free and when people get used to it, make it chargeable
3. Instead of charging heavily like Rs. 20, rationalise like Rs. 5 per transaction after free transactions
4. 5 transactions should mean money must be withdrawn successfully on all 5 attempts
5. Reduced ATM transactions would mean increase of walk-ins in the banks
6. Most of the banks charge customers for the ATM cards and hence all ATM withdrawals should be free
If there are any additional inputs, please post it as a comment to this post. Our objective should be to submit a recommendation on what and how it should work.
