Let us know that from February 1, PNB customers will not be able to withdraw money from non ATM machines. PNB has taken this step in view of increasing cases of fraud. Non-EMV ATMs or non-EMV ATMs are those in which the debit card is not used during the transaction. All you have to do is swap a card once in the beginning. In these machines, the card is read through the magnetic strip, while in the EMV machine, the card is also locked for a few seconds.
