The automated teller machine (ATM) network of Commercial Bank of Ceylon dispensed Rs. 8.818 billion on April 9 and 10, shattering the previous records for the highest and second highest cash disbursements for a 24-hour period, as Sri Lanka’s leading private bank facilitated the celebration of the Sinhala and Tamil New Year.

The disbursements of Rs. 4.498 billion on April 9 and Rs 4.320 billion on the following day represented a substantial increase over the single-day values recorded in previous years.

In total, Commercial Bank dispensed Rs 41.748 billion via its ATM network between April 1-15  at an average of Rs 2.783 billion per day, reaffirming the  reliability and robustness of the network. On seven of these 15 days the network dispensed more than Rs. 2 billion a day, and on five days disbursements exceeded Rs. 3 billion a day, a Bank official said.
