J&K Bank restores ATM operations on war footing

Excelsior Correspondent
SRINAGAR, Nov 4: After developing a snag in its ATM network in the Kashmir Valley owing to disruption in the power supply following unprecedented snowfall, J&K Bank has made most of its automated teller machines (ATMs) operational in the region.
Soon after the bank’s ATM network went out of gear, the bank swiftly constituted special teams in all valley districts to make the ATMs operational for the convenience of the people.
Notably, the bank has a network of almost 700 ATMs in the Kashmir region.
Due to lack of power supply in the valley due to heavy snowfall, the uninterrupted power supply (UPS) back-up got exhausted, leaving the machines non-operational. The bank teams used mobile power generators to load the machines with sufficient power back in the absence of normal power supply.
The bank has regretted inconvenience to the public, if any, caused by disruption in the ATM services. Pertinently, the disruption was due to cut in power supply on the entire valley.
