Collector Pravin Kumar inaugurated a mobile ATM of the District Co-operative Central Bank (DCCB) on Monday.
He hoped that it would end the difficulty of the people in the rural and tribal areas, who are going to nearby towns for cash withdrawals.
He also said that the customers of any bank can utilize the cash withdrawal facilities using their debit cards.
“The ATM was being launched with the NABARD assistance of Rs 15 lakhs,” said DCCB Chief Executive Officer D.V.S. Varma.
The mobile ATM equipped with GPS monitoring facility will have Rs 5 lakhs in reserve and once the money is exhausted, cash will be reloaded from the nearest bank.
Meanwhile, the DCCB employees have donated their one day’s salary that is the amount of Rs 1.7 lakhs for the flood victims in Kerala. A cheque with that amount was handed over to the Collector on Monday.
District Co-operative Officer M.D. Milton and DCCB General Manager D. Annapurna were present on the occasion.
