Bank automated teller machines (ATMs) are no longer limited to operating between 8am and 8pm starting from the month of June, said Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

During the movement control order (MCO) period, it was announced that all ATM machines, including 24-hour ones, would only be allowed to operate for 12 hours a day from 8am to 8pm. This was to prevent people from breaking MCO rules on the pretext of withdrawing cash from ATMs as a matter of emergency.

Now, banks are allowed to resume pre-MCO operating hours as long as social distancing guidelines are maintained.

The senior minister also added that the RM1 fee waiver for MEPS ATM withdrawals will remain throughout the conditional movement control order (CMCO) which is scheduled to end on 9 June. The fee waiver enables customers to freely conduct their withdrawals at the ATMs of any bank closest to their homes, instead of travelling further to use the ATM of a specific bank in order to avoid the RM1 fee.

“There are no changes on the RM1 payment (waiver) for withdrawals through ATMS, so we can still enjoy the benefit so far,” said Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri.
