The 2016 Big Ticket Growth Items for Electronics in India

The above are the big ticket items identified by DeitY for 2016. But micro-ATMs deserve a special mention. Micro ATMs are expected to be viable where ATMs are not. ATMs need at least 80-100 transactions a day to be viable as they a lot and and have monthly operating expenses of close to  Rs 20,000 after taking into account rental, telecom charges, AMC costs, electricity expenses and security guard.  A micro ATM costs less than Rs 20,000. It is widely expected that payment banks will use micro ATMs to reach out to rural poor to bring down their cost of operations.
