Cash withdrawal from any ATM free from today

April 1, 2009 at 5:05 am (News)

New Delhi: Now you can use ATM of any banks to withdraw cash from the account belongs to any other bank. As per a new directive by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), banks are asked to remove any fee for cash withdrawals using ATM and debit cards issued by other banks. The new arrangement will come into effect from April 1st onwards.

Meanwhile, banks can still charge extra for services such as cash withdrawal with the use of credit cards and at ATMs located outside India. In this context, some banks are planning to expand their ATM network. Oriental Bank of Commerce looks to increase its ATM base and will open 60 new ATMs across the country to facilitate smooth cash withdrawal.

On March 10 last year, RBI had brought out guidelines to limit the fee charged by banks for using their ATMs by clients of other lenders to Rs 20. It had also allowed the use of ATM, for purposes like balance enquiry, free of any charge. According to the central bank, this was to ensure greater transparency and facilitating usage of any ATM installed within the country by customers without shelling out more.

At present, banks charge Rs 20 per transaction when a customer uses the cash machine of any bank other than the one in which he/she has an account with.

New virus infects ATM , steals money from banks

April 1, 2009 at 5:04 am (News)

atmMoscow: Automatic Teller Machines (ATM) may not be a safe way of transaction anymore as a new software virus has been found out which infects ATMs to steal money from bank accounts of their users. Doctor Web and ‘Kaspersky Lab, two major anti-virus software producers have discovered such virus in the networks of several bank ATMs, which is able to collect information from bank cards.

This is a malicious program intended to infect and survive in ATMs. It is possible that new software will appear, aimed at illegitimately using banking information and removing funds,” an official of the Kaspersky Lab was quoted as saying by RIA Novosti news agency.

According to the official, the virus is a Trojan which is able to infect the popular American Diebold brand of ATMs, used in Russia and Ukraine. Judging by the programming code used, there is a high probability that the programmer comes from one of the former Soviet republics.

The computer security experts say the number of infected ATMs is minimal but individual bank cardholders will not be able to detect whether an ATM is infected or not. However, banks can run security software to find out if their machines are at risk.

Mahatma Gandhi

Gandhi’s Talisman



“I will give you a talisman. Whenever you are in doubt, or when the self becomes too much with you, apply the following test. Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man [woman] whom you may have seen, and ask yourself, if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him [her]. Will he [she] gain anything by it? Will it restore him [her] to a control over his [her] own life and destiny? In other words, will it lead to swaraj [freedom] for the hungry and spiritually starving millions?
Then you will find your doubts and your self melt away.”
– One of the last notes left behind by Gandhi in 1948, expressing his deepest social thought.
