Mumbai-based BoB operates more than 4,000 branches throughout
India. The bank is deploying at least one ATM at each branch, fulfilling a Ministry of Finance directive to expand self-service banking options for the approximately 40 percent of
India's population that is underbanked.
"Expanding the capabilities and breadth of our ATM fleet will improve access to banking services in both urban and rural areas," said PD Singh, General Manager, Transaction Banking, BoB. "Diebold's ATMs and services are helping us deliver convenient, reliable self-service banking experiences to more customers."
Built with an intelligent power management system, the
Diebold 429 ATM alternates between available power sources, maximizing terminal uptime and reducing energy consumption by about 40 percent compared to older ATMs deployed in
India. Depending on daylight conditions, either solar panels or the AC grid power the ATM and charge its four-hour backup battery, which automatically activates when power is interrupted.
"The Diebold 429 ATM is a unique solution for delivering banking services in regions with unreliable electric service," said
Karthik Ganapathi, vice president and managing director,
Diebold South Asia. "We're enabling Bank of Baroda to deploy ATMs across its footprint, including locations – and customers – it could not previously reach."
The ATMs' security features – including
Europay, MasterCard and Visa (EMV) card readers, biometric technology and optional dual security cameras – help to mitigate card fraud and data security threats, while complying with the latest National Payments Corporation of
India (NPCI) regulatory requirements.
