The decision to fit the warship with an ATM facility was taken by the Indian Navy recently, who said this would also make INS Vikramaditya, the first ever warship in the world to have such facility.

This ATM would be operated via a satellite link and the machine, provided by SBI, would be inaugurated on January 28 in Karwar, Karnataka where INS Vikramaditya is based.

 

Giving more details about the facility Captain DK Sharma, Spokesperson of the Indian Navy said that INS Vikramaditya is quite far from the jetty and that every time a Navy personnel, who is deployed onboard, needs money, he has to travel at least 4-5 Km just to access an ATM.

Thus, the Indian Navy felt that an ATM should be opened onboard warship itself, which would not only save their time but resources as well.

 



Looking at that, the Indian Navy approached State Band of India (SBI), so as to ask them to provide an ATM facility onboard Vikramaditya, to which they agreed.

INS Vikramaditya was built in Russia and then commissioned in the Indian Navy in November 2013.

It has well over 1,600 personnel commissioned onboard and is thus called a ‘Floating City’.
