RBI on 8th April 2022 announced that people can now withdraw money from ATMs without debit and credit cards. This will be done via UPI (unified payments interface) authentication. HDFC, SBI, and ICICI banks already have this process enabled.


RBI said, “To encourage cardless cash withdrawal facility across all banks and ATM networks, it is proposed to enable customer authorization through the use of UPI. Settlement of such transactions would happen through the ATM networks. Separate instructions would be issued to NPCI (National Payments Corporation of India), ATM networks and banks shortly.”

It added “In addition to enhancing ease of transactions, the absence of the need for physical cards for such transactions would help prevent frauds such as card skimming and card cloning, among others.”
