Mysore, Oct 14 (UNI) The Canara Bank has launched a mobile ATM to help its customers during the ongoing Dasara festivities here.
Reserve Bank of India (RBI), Mumbai, Deputy Governor General Shyamala Gopinath inaugurated the bio-metric and multilingual ATM, housed in a modern van. The state-of-the-art ATM, operated through V-SAT, would recognise the thumb impressions of account holders to help the illiterate in banking.
This would be handy for the illiterates as one had to just make thumb impression on the monitor and type the secret code. Now, there would be a voice code to assist the customer.
Meanwhile, the RBI set up a stall in the exhibition ground, depicting the history of Indian currency. It chronicled various dynasties from the Gupta period, Indo-Greek coinage, metal currency of pre-colonial India and princely states and the present-day currency.
Indian paper currency from 1770 to 2006, including that of Rs 10,000, Rs 5,000 and Rs 1000, demonetised in 1978, were on display.
