RBB adds five more ATMs

Kathmandu, August 11:

Rastriya Banijya Bank (RBB) added five more ATMs — at Bir Hospital, Thamel, Maharjgunj, New Baneshwor and Lalitpur — in the Kathmandu Valley today to make it a total of seven ATMs. It already has two ATMs at Teku and Singhdurbar.

“With growing competition and introduction of new technology in banking sector, RBB also is capable in providing its customers a modern banking experience,” said Dr Bholanath Chalise, chairman of the bank.

Speaking after the inauguration of the ATMs, he said that RBB is going to add 23 more ATMs to make it a total of 30 by the end of this fiscal year.

“We are planning to install new ATMs at Balaju, Jorpati, Nepal Airlines Corp, Dharma path, Butwal and Pokhara soon,” he said, adding that though RBB is a government bank, the service it provides can match with that of any private banks. “In terms of technology, product and services we do not lag behind others,” Dr Chalise said.

Under the financial sector reform programme, RBB has computerised its 94 branches. It provides 365 days banking facility at 10 branches and three branches offer morning counter facility.
