Karachi: Pakistan’s first cardless ATM was formally launched on Tuesday for the convenience of the customers by Bank Islami. The service was launched at an inauguration ceremony, presided by Kazi Abdul Muqtadir and Saeed Ahmed Deputy Governors State Bank of Pakistan (SBP).
The cardless ATM will remove the need to remember a code and can be accessed by illiterate people as well, as it will be operated by a thumb print as identification. Saeed Ahmed Deputy Governor SBP stated that the bio-metric service will be one of its kind in Pakistan. According to Hasan Aziz Bilgrami CEO of the Bank, the service will provide a secure transaction for the customers.
About 160 Bank Islami ATMs have this facility, which can only be availed by Bank Islami customers. The service was initially made available in selected ATMs in 2012, but now it has been made available in about 201 branches in 77 cities.
The ceremony was attended by Hasan Aziz Bilgrami CEO BankIslami, Asad Alim Head Information System, George Flouros Area VP MEA NCR, Muhammad Faisal Shaikh Head Products & Business Development and others.
