    II. Only banks are permitted to set up automated teller machines (ATMs) as extended delivery channels.

    A)  Only I is correct

    B)  Both are correct

    C)  Only II is correct

    D)  Both are incorrect

    Correct Answer: B

    Solution :

    [b] White Label ATMs: The Reserve Bank recently allowed nonbanking companies to set up white-label ATMs in the country. Most automated teller machines (ATMs), or machines that dispense cash, are owned by banks. But ones that are owned and operated by non-banking companies are called while-label ATMs (WLAs). They function just the same way as any other bank-run ATM. So far, banks have deployed almost 87,000 ATMs across India. Although they are free to put up ATMs anywhere, there is still a huge scope for setting up more ATMs in non-urban - and non-metro cities. So, the RBI has allowed non-banking companies to deploy white-label ATMs to expand their reach in rural India. However, non-banking companies entering this market will have to maintain a certain ATM ratio between rural and urban India. The RBI is yet to prescribe the ratio.
