What is Kiosk Banking?

Banking and its associated services have become a part of one’s day-to-day life. Everything from checking balances or depositing cheques, the bank does it all. In the era of developing tools that make our lives a little easier, banks have also opted for tools such as ATMs.
ATMs’ provision has simplified processes like money transfer and withdrawal of cash, which is why it gained popularity amongst the average working individuals that could access money on the go. But, such kind of facility has been far out of the reach of the minority or poverty-ridden sections of the society. This section majorly comprises the daily wage earners that are unable to reach out to the banks for availing the fundamental services.
To bridge this gap, the Reserve Bank of India introduced the much renowned Kiosk Banking system.

Kiosk Banking and its meaning

The word KIOSK stands for Kommunikasjon Integrert Offentlig Service Kontor, and it denotes a small open-fronted hut or a cubicle. In terms of banking, a Kiosk is a service introduced to cater to the banking needs of the low-income sections of the society by bringing the common banking services near their locality.
The kiosk allows the individuals to access the banking facilities such as cheque transfer, transactions, balance inquiry, cash deposit or remittances, etc. They can do all this without having to go to a banking branch. This benefits the LIGs (Low Income Groups) as they get all the services without having to visit the bank. As these individuals are incapable of maintaining a minimum amount in their bank accounts, Kiosk provides them with the ability to maintain their bank accounts without a fret.

Components of Kiosk Banking

Generally, the Kiosk is set-up as a booth in any local shops or retail points available in the neighborhood of villages. This ensures an enhanced reach and greater accessibility to customers.
There are two components of a Kiosk Banking system:
