How does Biometric ATM work?
In India the first Biometric ATM was setup by ICICI bank in Andhara Pradesh in 2005. Today, State bank of India, Punjab National bank, Axis bank, Catholic Syrian bank, Grameen Vikas Bank all have setup Biometric ATMs.
One of the strong reasons these banks are setting up Biometric ATMs is rural population in India. People in rural and hill areas find it difficult to remember numbers as their PIN code. Biometric ATMs help them to overcome this problem and at the same time it adds safety and security in the banking process.
