USAGE IN INDIA •

According to a 2006 survey by Banknet India, 95% people now prefer this modern channel to traditional mode of banking. Almost 60% people use an ATM at least once a week. Increased ATM usage is also helped by the fact that customers have now the flexibility of using ATMs of other banks, as most of the banks are part of major interbank networks like National Financial Switch (NFS), Mitr, BANCS, Cash tree and Cashnet.

Number of ATMs installed in the country grew by almost 20%, from 17,642 last year, to more than 21,000 by march 2006. Wide acceptance of ATMs by consumers, introduction of biometric ATMs, and various value-added ATM services will maintain growth in the industry.
