Penalty For Failed ATM Transactions Due To Insufficient Balance

We ignore checking the balance of our bank account most of the time before debiting cash from an ATM.

The account holder will understand the value of checking your account balance once, before debiting cash from an ATM, as withdrawing cash from an insufficient balance account will lead to an additional fee charged by banks for a ‘failed transaction’.

A message informing you of ‘insufficient funds’ will flash on the ATM screen, while you will be charged a nominal fee for a failed ATM transaction.

That’s why it’s always needed when performing an ATM withdrawal to check the balance first. To know the available balance and avoid an unnecessary overhead charge for a failed transaction due to insufficient account balance, you can use options such as SMS and call facilities.

For a failed ATM transaction (due to insufficient balance), we will collect the extra fee imposed by some of the top banks in the country so that you can be well-known in the future.
