What to keep in mind while using white label ATMs: From features, services to charges - all details here
For setting up an ATM (Automated Teller Machine), a bank needs to pay several costs, including that of the ATM premises, ATM systems, security as well as cash management. There are places where banks do not have their branch and might not find it cost-effective to set up an ATM on its own. The solution to this problem is a white label ATM. ATMs set up, owned and operated by non-banking organisations are called white label ATMs. These ATMs are authorised under the Payment and Settlement Systems Act, 2007, by the RBI. The RBI on March 7 reviewed the guidelines for white label ATMs operational in India and urged these ATM service providers to take measures to improve financial security and safety of customers. Here are all you need to know about the White label ATMs.
