In the Statement on Developmental and Regulatory prices, RBI has announced, " Usage of Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) by the public has been growing significantly. There have, however, been persistent demands to change the ATM charges and fees. In order to address these, it has been decided to set up a Committee involving all stakeholders, under the chairmanship of the Chief Executive Officer, Indian Banks' Association (IBA), to examine the entire gamut of ATM charges and fees. The Committee is expected to submit its recommendations within two months of its first meeting. The Composition and Terms of Reference of the Committee will be issued within a week."

In other locations, first five transactions (inclusive of financial and non-financial) are offered free of charge. Thereafter, Rs 20 per financial transaction and Rs 8.50 per non-financial transaction, as per the bank's website.
Similarly, State Bank of India offers same number of free transactions in both metro and non-metro locations. Thereafter it charges, Rs 20 plus GST per financial transaction and Rs 8 plus GST for non-financial transaction as mentioned on its website.
There has been a persistent demand by the Confederation of ATM industry (CATMI) to correct the fee structure in order to curb losses.
