Bank of India has become the first state-run lender to allow withdrawal of funds to individuals from its ATMs without an account in the bank.

Last month, RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan had said that individuals without a bank account will soon be able to receive money from those with bank accounts, using automated teller machines (ATM).

"This service is in line with the RBI's expectation of expanding financial inclusion, wherein fund transfer can happen from account holders to those without accounts through ATMs," BoI Chairperson and Managing Director V R Iyer said. Iyer said that some of ATMs are already being made ITM-enabled and the rest will be enabled in 20 days.
