Afghans Complain of Deactivated ATMs, Difficulty Accessing Funds

Citizens complained of the deactivation of ATM machines, saying that they are struggling to withdraw their money from the banks. 

Residents of Kabul said that the ATM machines in several parts of the city are deactivated. 

They called for the reactivation of the machines.   

“All the ATM machines are closed from which we used to take our salary,” said Mohammad Safeer, a resident of Kabul. 

“There has never been such a crowd. Now the problems are a bit high. The banks cannot distribute it properly and the ATM machines are closed,” said Abdul Sabir, a resident of Kabul.   

However, the Central Bank said that ATM machines are now active across the country.   

“Da Afghanistan Bank (Central Bank) issued a statement to all private banks to reactivate their ATM machines and therefore, all ATM machines are active now,” said Mohammad Sabir Momand, a spokesman for Da Afghanistan Bank. 

After the fall of the former government, the Afghan banking system faced severe problems.  

However, restrictions on withdrawing and transferring funds were recently lifted.
