Andhra Bank rolls out biometric ATMs

23 May 2007  |  7004 views  |  0 biometrics - eye

India's Andhra Bank is targeting unbanked customers in the country with the introduction of two mobile biometric cash machines that utilise fingerprint scanning technology to verify customers and will be transported to various locations.

The mobile units have initially been deployed to Hyderabad and Secunderabad but will be moved to a different location every week, under a schedule agreed by the Reserve Bank of India.

Customers wishing to use the biometric ATM service will need to register their fingerprints at their local branch, although the units also accept PINs as verification.

The ATMs also provide audio instructions in Telugu colloquial language that will guide customers on how to use the service.

The bank plans to roll out the mobile biometric-access ATMs at Kakinada, Visakhapatnam and Tirupati during this financial year, and has plans to launch 20 units across the country by 2010.
