The lone ATM (Automated Teller Machine) facility installed by the Andaman and Nicobar State Cooperative Bank at remote Great Nicobar region has again started dispensing pain for customers for the past few days. The facility has remained non-operational since Saturday and hundreds of bank customers, locals and government employees posted in the region, are facing the brunt of apathy of the top management of the bank towards ensuring apt services in the region.
“For the last few days, this lone ATM facility of Cooperative Bank has remained out of order. During weekends, the ATM witnesses heavy rush of customers, but hundreds of customers have been returning dejected. Recurring snags in the Coop Bank ATM has been taking a toll on customers here, but the management has failed to ensure reliable services for its customers. The Cooperative Bank should ensure dependable ATM services for the remote population or else it is closed down so that customers are able explore other options,” said some residents of Jetty Bazar.
