The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has mandated that all banks, ATM networks, and White Label ATM Operators (WLAOs) offer Interoperable Card-less Cash Withdrawal (ICCW) across all ATMs in India.Everyone would be able to withdraw cash from ATMs without using debit or credit cards once the feature is operational for all banks.
The Reserve Bank of India has also urged the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) to aid with transaction authentication by facilitating Unified Payments Interface (UPI) connection with all banks and ATM networks.”ICCW may be offered by all banks, ATM networks, and WLAOs at their ATMs.In a recently issued circular, the RBI advised NPCI to “enable Unified Payments Interface (UPI) interoperability with all banks and ATM networks”.
Customer authorisation will be done through UPI, while settlement will be done through the National Financial Switch (NFS) or ATM networks, according to the central bank.The circular stated, “The on-us / off-us ICCW transactions will be conducted without the imposition of any costs other than those prescribed under the circular on Interchange Fee and Customer Charges”.
The withdrawal limitations will be the same as those for conventional on- and off-site ATM withdrawals, according to the central bank.”All other instructions pertaining to Harmonisation of Turn Around Time (TAT) and customer compensation for unsuccessful transactions will remain in effect”, according to the circular.
Only a few banks, such as ICICI and HDFC, currently enable cardless cash withdrawal at their ATMs.With the passage of time, all other banks in the country will allow consumers to withdraw money from ATMs without using a debit or credit card.Let’s take a look at how to get cash from an ATM without using a debit or credit card.
