Security Measures for ATMs
As stated in para 15 of
the monetary policy statement dated October
04, 2016, the Bank had constituted a Committee on Currency Movement
(CCM) [Chair: Shri D.K. Mohanty, Executive Director] to review the entire
gamut of security of treasure in transit. The recommendations of the
Committee have been examined and certain measures aimed at mitigating risks
in ATM operations and enhancing security, are listed below:
ATMs shall be operated for cash replenishment only with digital One Time
Combination (OTC) locks.
ATMs shall be grouted to a structure (wall, pillar, floor, etc.) by
September 30, 2019, except for ATMs installed in highly secured premises
such as airports, etc. which have adequate CCTV coverage and are guarded by
state / central security personnel.
may also consider rolling out a comprehensive e-surveillance mechanism at
the ATMs to ensure timely alerts and quick response.
2. The above measures shall be
implemented in addition to the existing instructions, practices and
guidance issued by the Reserve Bank of India and law enforcement agencies.
Non-adherence of timelines / non-observance shall attract regulatory action
including levy of penalty.
