In today’s world, we often depend on online technology in every sector. Finance is one such industry which is highly dependent on online payment systems. With the introduction of a cashless economy, the government and the financial institution’s efforts are directed towards supporting the cashless economy revolution with the introduction of online payment modes like UPI, net banking, NEFT, RTGS, etc. Then why are ATM debit card transfers still relevant in this online world?

Which situations call for ATM debit card money transfer?

Although it’s good to make use of online payment methods like UPI or net banking for instant money transfers, technology can fail us sometimes. We all have been in situations when our UPI apps face a connection issue. Moreover, you need an active internet connection to make any online transactions.

Therefore, in a situation where you are stuck with your vehicle without petrol in the middle of the road and you have no cash or have a low budget in your account, a small instant transfer from your loved ones can really help you out. But, what if your UPI is facing any issue or you don’t have access to an active internet connection?! Traditional methods like money orders or cheque payments won’t help you in such an emergency situation.

In this case, an ATM money transfer is the way to go. It is one of the easiest ways to transfer money without an active internet connection or complicated formalities.

In this article, we will be discussing steps to transfer money to your loved ones using an ATM debit card.
