Have you ever been in an emergency situation where you need cash but don’t have an ATM card? Withdrawing cash from ATMs can be handy especially where online payments and UPI are not very common. However, carrying a debit card always has its own risks as it can be used to make contactless payments without PIN. It can also be used to dupe accountholders while using unauthorized ATMs. For safety of accountholders, they can now withdraw money even without using debit cards. This can be done through UPI-ATM ICCW.

ICCW or Interoperable Card-less Cash Withdrawal is a facility that allows account holders to withdraw money from their account without using a debit/credit card.

Thereafter, customers will be charged Rs. 20 per transaction.

Maximum Withdrawal through UPI-ATM

As per the initial arrangements, a maximum of Rs. 1 Lakh every month can be withdrawn as one can carry out a transaction only up to Rs. 1 Lakh through UPI every month. It also has an upper capping of Rs. 10,000 every day. However, if one uses the same account for other UPI transactions, the overall withdrawal limit would decrease accordingly.

Even though this new facility is safer and more convenient, it may take some time for the banks to implement it on a large scale. Though this facility is still in initial phases, more banks are expected to join the platform and provide this facility and flexibility to their customers. However, capping on the maximum withdrawal limit is expected to stay similar till the facility gets popular among masses.
