For those who are not familiar with the cash deposit machine, can always choose to opt for traditional method at banks.
Cash deposits are the most traditional and popular way of adding money in your bank account or someone else's. With the advancement in technology, the move has definitely become quite easier, in fact, banks have also launched their own machine in various branches where a customer does not even need to fill a piece of paper. This is more of a digital pattern called as Cash Deposit Machine (CDM). However, for those who are not familiar with cash deposit machine, can always choose to opt for traditional method at banks. But either be a third party person or yourself, majority of banks levy service charge on the money you put in a bank account.
Here’s how you can do a cash deposit using machine!
The method is similar like removing money from an Automated Teller Machine (ATM). Only difference is that in CDM you send cash and not receive. Majority of banks have launched their own CDM either in their branch or in the ATM near it. The procedure differs from bank to bank.
For example, some banks will ask you to insert your debit card and PIN number for authentication. After this, an option like savings or current account will be asked. A box will open once you confirm your account type, add the money you plan to deposit. The machine will then present details of your denomination, if correct then confirm for successful transaction. Make sure to take the receipt as a proof. Deposits can be made in denominations like Rs 100, Rs 200, Rs 500 and Rs 2,000, and in some cases also Rs 50 is allowed.
Second procedure is where you will be asked to feed in details of just your bank account. Visit your banks CDM, select the option of money deposit, you will be asked to add your bank account number. Once added, select confirm and a page displaying your name will be shown. Once confirm that, add the money in the box. After sometime, you will shown the details of denomination and amount value. Select confirm and collect your receipt. Almost immediately you receive the message of credit.
However, to do so, you should also know there are a host of charges levied on carrying CDM transaction. Let’s compare SBI vs ICICI Bank vs PNB.
