“Getting money from ATM wastes lot of time as people have to stand in long queues,” said another local. He added that sometimes the people quarreled with the bank staff due to slow working of the machine.

Apart from general bank customers, the beneficiaries of the Benazir Income Support Program (BISP) also faced difficulties in getting their quarterly funds as the money is being transferred through ATM cards.

“We demand of the government and higher management of the commercial banks to install ATMs in different business centers of the agency so that the people should not face any problem in getting their money,” demanded one of the beneficiaries of BISP.
