DCB Bank launches Aadhaar enabled ATM in Bengaluru


DCB Bank has launched Bengaluru’s first ATM that accepts Aadhaar number and Aadhaar fingerprint (biometric) instead of ATM/Debit Card and PIN to dispense cash. The “cardless and PIN-less” ATM was launched by former Chairman of the Unique Identification Authority of India, Nandan Nilekani. Nilekani is the Chairperson and Co-founder of EkStep Foundation, a non-profit literacy organisation. 

DCB Bank is the only commercial bank to have launched Aadhaar-enabled ATM in the country. The Bank pilot launched India’s first Aadhaar based ATM in Mumbai. This was followed by the launch of Aadhaar based ATM in Odisha and Punjab. The Bank also plans to upgrade all its 400 plus ATMs to provide Aadhaar-based functionality in the next six months or so.

So let’s discuss some questions related to this post :
1. Name the bank which has launched the Bengaluru’s first Aadhaar enabled ATM?
2. The Bengaluru’s first Aadhaar enabled ATM has been launched by whom?
