Some of the ATM transaction related relief announced in the wake of coronavirus led lockdown may be withdrawn, as so far there has not been any announcement for extending scheme beyond June 30.
In late March, the finance minister while addressing concerns pertaining to the impact of the coronavirus on the economy allowed free cash withdrawal from other bank ATMs for 3 months. This was in addition to the waiver on charges for non-maintenance of minimum amount in bank savings account.
So, as is the situation, earlier rules concerning ATM withdrawal are likely to be restored from July 1.
Accordingly, customers will need to keep in mind bank-specific ATM cash withdrawal rules:
Below are provided SBI's ATM withdrawal rules:
