Srinagar: The ATM network of Jammu and Kashmir Bank has crossed the 1,000-mark, the bank said today. It has added 676 ATM machines to its network over the past five years.
"Continuing its focus on customer convenience, J&K Bank has achieved a target of 1,000 automated teller machines (ATMs) installed across the country," a spokesman of the bank said.
Over 900 ATMs are put up in Jammu and Kashmir alone. The bank was instrumental in setting up the first ATM in the state at the Residency Road here in December 1996.
The ATM footprint of the bank is spread across the state, with Jammu accounting for 327, Kashmir 568 and Ladakh 23, he said, adding that this includes Drass, the second-coldest place in the world.
"We are committed to providing world-class technology-driven services to customers at their doorstep," Chairman and CEO Mushtaq Ahmad said.
"Even as we are commercial in nature, we lay more emphasis on convenience of customers rather than making hefty profits. Our ATM network is robust and we are penetrating deep into remote locations to extend the benefit of this machine," he added.
Jammu and Kashmir Bank has currently over 23 lakh debit card holders.
