Now no unlimited free access to ATMs of other banks

From Thursday there will no more unlimited withdrawal from the ATMs of other banks in India. Now one can only avail of five free cash withdrawals in a month using third-party ATMs.Each additional transaction will cost Rs 20 while the maximum cash withdrawal from a third-party ATM will be limited to Rs 10,000 per transaction. Moreover only savings account holders will be able to use ATMs of other banks and current account holders won’t have any access.

 

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) had earlier agreed to the demands made by Indian Banks’ Association (IBA) that there should be a restriction on cash withdrawals using third-party ATMs. IBA had submitted its recommendations to the RBI in July citing financial burden on banks due to a large number of third party usage and small-ticket withdrawals, resulting in high interchange expenses for banks. The short-lived freedom of using ATMs of other banks, for services like cash withdrawals and account enquiries, without being charged for the same, was brought in force by the RBI on April 1, just over six months back.

  1. Hello.

  3. Hello,

    I would like to request for a link change request regarding Engadgeteer

    [http://www.engadgeteer.com], kindly change it to this details:

    Title: TechGeeze | Latest Gadgets
    URL: http://www.techgeeze.com

    I have been forced to give up engadgeteer.com with a domain dispute with AOL in a matter of days

    the transfer will be done from now, so I’m hoping for your consideration. I’ll be doing again for

    a big campaign on this new domain to bring back the ranking and searches, the PR4 remain same as

    it leeches out its original rank from its blogger url. So it would be a great help for me if you

    can grant my request.

    Let me know if you have any questions or return request and let me know if the change is done.
