Restrictions on ATM withdrawals are back

The Finance Minister on 24 March, 2020 announced that for three months debit cardholders could withdraw cash from any bank’s ATM free of charge for the next three months.

From today onwards, these relaxations has ended and the regular limits and charges will apply.

Another relief provided by FM in March was the waiver of penalty on non-maintenance of bank account balance for three months.

This relief are over on 30 June, 2020. Now non-maintenance of minimum balance will again attract a penalty. The penalty amount levied for non-maintenance of minimum balances will vary from bank to bank.
