 Kotak Mahindra Bank launches Micro ATMs across India
Customers of all banks who possess a debit card can use a Kotak Micro ATM for key banking services such as cash withdrawals and checking account balances.

To deliver essential banking services conveniently to a larger section of consumers living in relatively far-off areas, private lender Kotak Mahindra Bank Ltd on Tuesday announced the launch of Micro ATMs across the country.

Customers of all banks who possess a debit card can use a Kotak Micro ATM for key banking services such as cash withdrawals and checking account balances. A mini version of an ATM, micro ATMs are small handheld devices. The bank will use its extensive Business Correspondents (BC) network to launch micro-ATMs.

“The micro-ATM is a simple, innovative and highly effective solution to deliver essential banking services such as cash withdrawals in a convenient manner to people residing in relatively remote locations,” said Puneet Kapoor, President – Products, Alternate Channels and Customer Experience Delivery, Kotak Mahindra Bank. “It is a viable alternative to a regular ATM, allowing for faster expansion and increasing banking touchpoints for consumers. Kotak’s network of micro-ATMs across the country will help customers of all banks (Kotak and non-Kotak customers) get easy access to their bank accounts and promote financial inclusion.”

At the end of August, there were 2.13 lakh ATMs in the country, up from 2.09 lakh same time last year, a meagre growth of 1.5%. On the flip side, micro-ATMs have grown to 4.94 lakh as against 3.07 lakh in August last year, a rise of over 60%.

In the first phase, Kotak Mahindra Bank is introducing micro-ATM in the outskirts of the top 8 metro cities – locations where the demand for cash withdrawal services is high but the prevalence of ATM is low.
