RBI-Need for bank branches/ATMs to be made Accessible to persons with disabilities
June, 12th 2014

RBI/2013-14/637
UBD.BPD.Cir.No. 70/13.03.000/2013-14

June 11, 2014

The Chief Executive Officer
All Primary (Urban) Co-operative Banks

Dear Sir / Madam

Need for bank branches/ATMs to be made
Accessible to persons with disabilities

Please refer to our circular UBD.CO.BPD.(PCB) Cir. No.63/9.39.000/2008-09 dated April 29, 2009 on the captioned subject, wherein banks were advised to provide, inter alia, ramps in all existing and future ATMs, and make at least one third of new ATMs installed as talking ATMs with Braille keypads. It was also advised to ensure that at least one talking ATM with Braille keypad is generally available in each locality for catering to the needs of visually impaired persons.

2. UCBs are now advised to take appropriate steps to provide ramps at the entrance of the bank branches so that persons with disabilities / wheel chair users can enter bank branches and conduct business without difficulty. Banks are advised to report the progress made in this regard periodically to their Board of Directors/Customer Service Committee of the Board and ensure compliance. However, in cases where it is impracticable to provide such ramp facilities, whether permanently fixed to earth or otherwise, the requirement may be dispensed with, for reasons recorded or displayed in branches or ATMs concerned.

3. It is observed that some banks have not yet made at least one third of the new ATMs installed as talking ATMs with Braille keypads as advised vide our circular referred to above. It is, therefore, advised that banks should make all new ATMs installed from July 1, 2014 as talking ATMs with Braille keypads and lay down a road map for converting existing ATMs as talking ATMs with Braille keypads as advised in our circular dated April 24, 2009 ibid and the same may be reviewed from time to time by the Board of Directors/Customer Service Committee of the Board.

4. In addition to the above, magnifying glasses should also be provided in all bank branches for the use of persons with low vision, wherever they require, for carrying out banking transactions with ease. Branches should display at a prominent place notice about the availability of magnifying glasses and other facilities available for persons with disabilities.

Yours faithfully,

(P.K.Arora)
General Manager
