Nepal's Everest Bank Ltd opened an automatic teller machine (ATM) counter at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, the first ever ATM in the country's airports, stated a press release issued here Thursday.
Just after the inaugural ceremony, foreigners and Nepali customers present at the airport started withdrawing money from the ATM.
"We at the Everest Bank have always endeavored in exploring new avenues to cater to the needs and requirements of our customers," said Dhruba Prasad, executive director of the bank.
The ATM at the airport accepts such credit cards as SCT cards, Master cards and Visa cards, he added.
The bank has two ATM at its branch offices in Kathmandu, he said, adding that the debit cards can also be used at those merchant outlets like departmental stores, restaurants and hotels with no additional cost.
