OSRTC ties up with Indicash ATM to serve 35 lakh commuters

Bhubneshwar: Tata Communications Payment Solutions Ltd (TCPSL), which operates white label ATM networks in Indicash, announced the launch of Indicash ATMs at Odisha State Road Transport Corporation’s (OSRTC) bus depots.

As a first step towards this initiative to extend ATM convenience across OSRTC bus stands in Odisha, two Indicash ATMs were installed at Baramunda Bus Stand in Bhubaneshwar and Badambadi Bus Stand in Cuttack.

The ATMs would extend cash and non-cash services and convenience to over ten lakh commuters and passersby at both the bus depots.

The Indicash ATMs were inaugurated by Ajay Sagar, Head of ATM deployment of TCPSL, Anurag Nigam, Chief of Operations of TCPSL, Saroj Kumar Patel, General Manager of OSRTC and Sudip Kumar Behra, District Transport Manager of OSRTC yesterday, a press release today said.

Indicash has built a robust network of over 7,000 ATMs across 20 states, 360 districts and 4,000 towns providing ATM convenience to close to 2.5 crore customers in over two years in the country, it said.

With a strong network footprint of over 200 ATMs in Odisha, the state plays a vital role in the company’s roll out plan.

Indicash is currently serving lakhs of users across 20 districts of Odisha spanning semi-urban and rural geographies. This inauguration is yet another step in realising Indicash ATM networks’ vision to drive financial inclusion in the country, the release said.

Sanjeev Patel, CEO, Tata Communications Payment Solutions Limited, said “Indicash ATM network’s mission is to augment customer convenience by providing ATM accessibility in hitherto untapped remote geographies across India. We are committed to expand the Indicash ATM convenience to Odisha, given it is one of the highly under-penetrated ATM markets in the country. This partnership with OSRTC will nurture our common cause of providing convenience and comfort to consumers, specially those residing in remote areas.”

Saroj Kumar Patel, General Manager, OSRTC, said “We are happy to partner with Indicash ATMs, the largest white label ATM network in India, spearheading ATM accessibility in the country. We have been witnessing an increased demand by the commuters to extend ATM convenience at our bus stands, which are an important congregation point in villages. This tie-up is a significant step towards providing our commuters with the ATM convenience at our bus stands.”
