Mini-ATMs are the new age banking solution
India is witnessing a great revolution in the financial and technological advancements due to supportive government schemes and customers. Many government schemes have initiated to open saving bank accounts of customers, loan availability, providence of insurance services, pension for low income groups etc. All these initiatives have led to various benefits for customers but the last-mile solution for cash disbursal still remains a challenge even now for many people. There are lack of ATMs for the wide range of geographical areas.
India has among the lowest number of ATMs for the population. A survey has revealed that India has very few number of ATMs for a million of population. Even this scenario has been improving from 2012 to 2018 but still, ATM market is underpenetrated. This scenario gives a rise to digital payments and digital economy as a whole.
A comparison of ATMs per million people
With less number of ATMs and bigger challenge of cash withdrawal, this concern has to be resolved for better convenience of customers.
- US has about 1,500 ATMs per million people
- China has about 350 ATMs per million
- India has only 120 ATMs per million people
Moreover, the cost of operating and maintaining a conventional ATM is very high as it includes 24*7 availability of security and power. Considering this situation, ATM is not considered as a viable option for the cash facilities, especially in semi-urban and rural areas.
