At a time when scores of bank customers fear cloning of their ATM cards, State Bank of India (SBI) is providing a facility where you can make card-less cash withdrawal. This facility is available through SBI Yono Card. You may be wondering if you should now surrender you ATM card as cash can be withdrawn without it. Well, there are two reasons that may make you think against surrendering the ATM card. First, cash withdrawal with the help of SBI Yono app is currently limited. If you want to rely solely on card-less cash withdrawal facility through YONO platform, you should know that cash can be collected only at select ATMs (YONO Cash Points -YCP). “The account holder can withdraw money from select State Bank ATMs which are enabled for ‘YONO Cash’ functionality (YCPs),” SBI says in response to a query on Quora.
Second, the use of ATM cards is your discretion. SBI says, “Customers may surrender their ATM cards as the usage of the same is their individual discretion.”
Also, the ATM card is used not just for cash withdrawal. It can be used also at POS terminals and for online payments.
