Merdeka.com – State-Owned Enterprise (BUMN) bank customers must be prepared to tighten their belts. Because, starting June 1, 2021, the plan is for each BUMN bank customer balance check transaction at LINK ATMs to no longer be free or be subject to a fee of IDR 2,500 per balance check transaction.
In addition, cash withdrawals will also be charged IDR 5,000. This policy applies to customers of PT Bank Negara Indonesia Tbk (Persero), PT Bank Mandiri Tbk (Persero), PT Bank Tabungan Negara Tbk (Persero), and PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia (Persero). The four banks previously made free balance checks and cash withdrawals at Link ATMs.
YLKI Daily Executive Chairman, Tulus Abadi, rejected the policy. According to him, this is an exploitative policy.
“If the balance checks are subject to a fee, the less consumers will be, the more the balance will be eroded,” he said.
He considered that so far, banks have made admin fees their main income. If we look closely, banks only rely on admin fees from customers and this is unfair. “Let’s look at each customer per month at least Rp. 14,000 is deducted. Not other costs, such as taxes. So it took a long time for the customer’s money to be eaten up by administrative costs.”
Now merdeka.com will summarize a number of facts related to the policy of charging fees for transactions at ATM Link.
