Radha Rama Dorai, Managing Director – ATM and Allied Services, FIS
“ATM numbers have not been growing over the past one year. This is not a good situation, especially when the debit card issuance numbers are going up month on month and DBT dispensations are growing. The DBT beneficiaries need ATMs to withdraw the amounts so given by the Government. Some banks have initiated the process of upgrading their ATMs and reimbursing their service providers for the increased costs, while others are shutting down ATMs that are not profitable. Upgrading the ATMs for compliance is a long drawn out and logistically challenging process and one cannot expect full compliance across all the ATMs of the country, even by the end of this year. Various representations made by industry bodies to the Regulator and the Government for deferment or relaxation of deadlines, have not yielded substantive results so far.”
