The development of banking system has changed lives of many as one does not need to carry cash wherever s/he goes and even reduced risks of loss and theft.

Every banking institution provides different ways to its customers for withdrawing cash that they have deposited. Economic activities have become easier due to the Automated Teller Machine cards (ATM) that are provided by banks at various locations.

Banking institutions in Nepal are currently providing VISA, SCT and National Payment Network cards to account holders so that they can withdraw cash as per their requirement.

Sometimes customers are bound to use ATMs that are not operated by the respective bank at the time when ATMs are under maintenance and even when ATMs are not available at feasible location.  This will charge additional ATM fees.

How Bank ATM charges?

Normally every bank has some banks in its partnership and networking. A bank charges less ATM fees when cash is withdrawn from ATMs of banks that are in its network.  In other cases, when ATMs of other banks are used, it will charge Rs 250 per transaction.
