Earlier banks used to charge Rs 20 per transaction
The first 3 transactions are absolutely free for withdrawing money from the bank’s ATMs in the six metro cities of Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata, Bengaluru and Hyderabad. This includes both financial and non-financial transactions. While in non-metro cities, you can withdraw money from ATMs up to 5 times. After this, for financial transactions in metro cities, Rs 20 per transaction and Rs 8.50 for non-financial transactions had to be paid. Which has now been increased to 21.
Due to this the transaction fee has been increased
The decision to increase the transaction fee has been taken due to the increase in the cost of banks related to installation and maintenance of ATM machines. At the end of the financial year 2020-21, there were 1,15,605 ‘onsite’ (in bank premises) ATMs and 97,970 ‘offsite’ (apart from bank premises) ATMs across the country.
