ATM withdrawal fee waived during MCO

KUALA LUMPUR, 3 April 2020:

The Association of Islamic Banking and Financial Institutions Malaysia (AIBIM) will temporarily waive the RM1 fee imposed on cardholders for automated teller machine (ATM) cash withdrawals.

AIBIM said in a statement today, the waiver, effective Monday April 6 until the end of the Movement Control Order (MCO) period, applies to transactions conducted via MEPS-shared ATM Network (SAN) and MEPS white label ATMs in Malaysia.

“This is to ensure the public would be able to conduct ATM cash withdrawals at the nearest ATM with minimum movement.”

ATMs are in operation from 7am to 10pm throughout the MCO period (subject to operating hours imposed by state local authorities).

While the ATM continues its daily services, AIBIM strongly encourages its clients to utilise electronic platforms provided by its member banks during the restriction, for public safety and health.
