Bangladesh Bank (BB) has re-fixed the charges for using automated teller machine (ATM), which will be effective from February 1.
A circular of BB issued Tuesday re-fixed the fee at Taka 20 per transaction for cash out from ATM booths of banks other than the card issuing bank. Of the amount, Taka 15 will be debited from the account of the customer when the card issuing bank will pay the rest Taka five.
Currently, a similar transaction costs Taka 20, which is shared by the bank and customer equally.
The fee for a mini statement, however, remained unchanged at Taka five. There will be no fee for using the ATM of the card issuing bank.
Some 38 banks are now offering ATM services to the people through the National Payment Switch (NPS).
