Message: Please forward to your friends and family. If you are being robbed and the robbers take you to a ATM and ask you to withdraw money from your account. If you put ATM pin in reverse, nearest police station would be informed The RBI has advised banks to make this mandatory for all ATMs.
The feature will call up nearest policy station and your card will be blocked if you put in your PIN in reverse order. For example if your PIC is 1234 and you put in 4321 as your PIN in ATM machine the card would be blocked and policy will arrive in 5 minutes
