The central bank instructed the issuing bank and the acquiring bank to settle failed ATM transaction disputes through the ATM system provider only.

"No bilateral settlement arrangement outside the dispute resolution mechanism available with the system provided is possible," RBI said.

This measure is intended to reduce instances of disputes in payment of compensation between the issuing and acquiring banks, it added.
