The Corporation bank ATM near the D N Nagar Metro Station in Andheri West, Mumbai are quite troublesome.

As it's close to my residence, I tend to use it when I get down from the Metro.

One day, while the transaction process was on, the machine displayed this message " Wait, your transaction is under process'.

After waiting for 7 to 10 minutes, I tried to cancel the transaction. But the machine wasn't responding.

It was almost after 15 minutes that the transaction got cancelled.

I got an message on my phone that showed both withdrawal and reversal of the amount.

My friends have also experienced the same.

The Corporation Bank ATM always displays 'No Cash' or 'Under Maintenance.'

Moreover, if I use the ATM of any other bank, the bank sends me message saying that 'You have used another ATM. Please use Corporation Banks ATM.'

But then, the other Corporation Bank ATMs are around half a kilometre far away from my place.
