Qs 2. What is ATM? And how is it different from White Label ATM?

Sample Answer – As given by Eternal Bliss

ATM means Automated Teller Machines. These devices help customers avail electronic banking facilities by providing them an option to avail banking services through an automated system instead of standing in queues at bank’s counters. ATMs are helpful both for banks, by reducing the workload on its employees and to the customers, by making the process of availing banking services less cumbersome. After the advent of ATMs, banking services can be accessed anywhere and at any time of the day.

White label ATMs are owned and operated by non-bank entities while in case of normal ATMs(brown label), these are outsourced by the banks to private company so that the cash is put into the machines by the banks but the operating functions like paying rent, maintenance is the responsibility of the ATM owner. White labels ATMs don’t have any logo, while other ATMs have a logo of the banks. The individual/company setting up a white label ATM has got to have minimum net worth of 100 crore and has to get license from RBI before starting operations, no such obligation in case of brown label ATMs.

ATM stands for Automated Teller Machine. It functions 24*7 and hence it facilitates for anywhere and anytime banking. It enables customers to withdraw money using debit cards and also to find the account balance. It works on all days and hence customers can withdraw money even when a bank is not functioning or during the holidays.

Any non-bank entity can open white-label ATMs whereas ATMs can be opened only by banks. Another difference is that ATM machine bears the bank logo whereas, white label ATMs do not bear any logo. In addition to that, cash deposit is not permitted in white label ATMs. White label ATMs help in financial inclusion and recently government has approved 100% FDI in white label ATMs.
