NBP makes int’l record by installing world’s highest ATM

Islamabad—National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) has recently installed the World’s highest Auto Teller Machine (ATM) at Khunjrab Pass, near the Pak-China border at the altitude of 15,397 feet above sea level. According to a press release issued here, the highest ATM was launched jointly by President and CEO Syed Iqbal Ashraf and Lt. General Malik Zafar Iqbal.
Chief Minister Gilgit-Baltistan Hafizur Rehman, Force Commander Gilgit- Baltistan Saqib Mahmud Malik and other officials of the bank and Civil Military officials were also present on the occasion.
The venue of newly world’s highest ATM was on the route of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and would be helpful for growing needs of tourists in the area and the increasing business activities.
NBP has rolled out, within a span of just one year, the much delayed and long awaited implementation (since 2008) of its new core banking application “Profile” across its entire network. Aware of the importance of branchless banking and to serve its customers better, the management within the last 02 years completed the unprecedented expansion of its ATM network (both on-site & off-site) bringing the total ATMs from 375 to over 1,300. Total NBP ATM transactions have reached to 2.38 M in October 2016.
The world highest ATM (formally to be recognized by Guinness Book of records) of NBP installed at Khunjarab Pass (Pak-China Border – 15,397 feet above sea level) is the trademark of its commitment to provide banking services to the remotest locations. The bank’s leadership vision for branch less banking is further complemented through its alliance with all of the country’s telecos thereby expanding its network base from 1,409 branches to 150,000 telecos agents to meet the banking needs of its diverse clientele. SMS alert services, utility bill payment through ATMs, inter-bank funds transfer through ATM and 24/7 call center for un-interrupted services are also among the major achievements during the last 03 years.—APP
