Bhubaneswar: ICICI Bank today flagged off a mobile ATM in order to bring key banking services to the doorstep of the residents impacted by cyclone Fani in Puri district. Like a regular ATM, the mobile ATM offers key banking services including cash withdrawals and account related information such as account balance and mini statement. With this, the Bank now operates two mobile ATMs in the storm impacted rural and remote areas of Puri district.

 

Shri Aditya Prasad Padhi, IAS, Chief Secretary & Chief Development Commissioner, Government of Odisha, flagged off the mobile ATM. On the occasion, he said, “I am happy to know that ICICI Bank has contributed to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund and local administrations of the affected districts for relief and restoration operations. Also, the Bank is operating mobile ATMs in Puri district. We thank the Bank for coming forward for the relief works in the state.”

 

Mr. Pradosh Rout, Zonal Head – Retail, Odisha & Chhattisgarh, ICICI Bank said, “We at ICICI Bank are committed to assist rebuilding the state through our own initiatives as well as in partnership with the state government and the district authorities. The mobile ATMs are aimed at facilitating residents of Puri district with cash withdrawal and other key banking requirements.”

 

The deployment of the mobile ATM comes close on the heels of multiple initiatives taken by the Bank in the state, post cyclone Fani. The list includes:

  • Contribution of Rs. 10 crore to aid the state government and local authorities.
  • Waiving off penalties on late payment of EMI in May for retail loans—home, car and personal—for customers in the affected areas of the state. It has also waived off late payment fee of credit card dues as well as cheque bouncing charges for May, 2019.
