We had asked you, dear readers to share your good and bad ATM experiences.

P Nair, 46, shares his bad experience at an ATM. You can share yours too


I had a bad ATM experience at Thane West.

I was trying to withdraw money from a HDFC Bank ATM. When I inserted my card into the machine, the card went inside the machine, after a few seconds I heard three beep sounds.

Then I thought the (message on the) screen will (ask me) to enter my pin number and the amount which I want to withdraw.

I do not understand what happened but my card did not come out; the screen stood as usual and my card stuck inside the machine. Immediately I contacted the HDFC Bank next door and they asked me to write a complaint to the branch and after 15 days collect the card from the branch.

These types of ATM machines make the common man's life go haywire.
