Transaction Charges On ATM-Cum-Debit Cards Levied By Top Banks

Top banks in the country offer ATM-cum-debit cards but levy certain usage charges. From State Bank of India (SBI), the country’s largest lender, to private sector peers like HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank and Axis Bank – lenders offer a fixed number of ATM transactions free of cost every month. The ATM charges apply depending on the type – whether it belongs to the same bank where the customer’s account is located or some other bank – and nature of ATM – whether the ATM is located in a metropolitan or any other city in the country.
