Some issues in India


Used the card quite extensively in India and Sri Lanka earlier this year. There were some times that an ATM wouldn;'t accept the card, and more times it wouldn’t work for a purchase. But I wonder if these are issues with all prepaid cards?


ATMs in general in India can be quite problematic with most bank cards, not just prepaid cards. When I’ve travelled in India I’ve generally tried to use either HDFC or Standard Chartered ATMs. These always seem to work just fine.


I recently traveled through India, this is my experiencience with ATM:

No commission and work OK

  • HDFC Bank
  • Kotak Mahindra Bank
  • Yes Bank
  • Bank of Baroda

Commission of 200 rupees

  • Infusing Bank
  • Icici Bank
  • IndusInd Bank
    But these ATMs you can always cancel the operation when the commission warns.

In others bank directly doesn’t work.



If the ATM machine is quite old you may have some difficulties to use it.
