ISLAMABAD (APP) - A number of holders of Automated Teller Machines (ATM) cards of National Bank of Pakistan have been facing problems due to faulty ATMs at G-9 Markaz. The two ATMs set up at NBP branch had been out of order for the last many days and holders of cards were experiencing hard miseries. Zarina Kamal looking a bit peevish said that one ATM had been shut up for the last many months while the second functioned rarely. "It is regrettable that the officers concerned have not been paying due heed to our problems, and the situation becomes most annoying when during shopping spree at the Karachi company, we suddenly feel cash strapped," observed Nazar Waqar, a government employee. Whenever, we tried to bring attention of the concerned staff of NBP branch they assured us that lingering problem would be removed soon, Naeem Shami, a resident of the sector remarked. Liaquat Baloch, manager of the branch, when contacted replied that they had retrieved used calling cards from the faulty ATMs inserted by unknown persons. "It was strange that unknown persons also tried to insert iron wires in ATMs with some criminal motives," he added. Razeena Iqrar, a house women at G-10, also complained that an ATM set up there usually had no cash, resulting in their agony. The same problem persists in Sectors I-9 and H-8. The customers were of the view that due to non-availability of cash and frequent faults they often have to face hardships especially at the last days of a month. After opening links with other private banks, the concerned staff seemed to neglect poor functioning of these ATMs, Ahmed Aslam of sector I-9 remarked.
