Things to remember

  • It is always safe to request the bank to send your ATM PIN immediately to you by post instead of sending a messenger to get your PIN.

  • Always make it a point to note your new PIN and ensure that it is not easily accessible. This would be helpful to you to recollect you PIN in case you happen to forget it once again. By doing so, you can access ATM without any difficulty.

  • If necessary, you can send a copy of your cash card/s as an enclosure along with the request letter.

Hi Kalyani,
I think the commercial Bank does not provide the fresh PIN in case the PIN number forget by the ATM card holder.Under the situation one have to surrender the ATM card and a fresh card to be issued with new PIN number.Because everybody changes his original PIN (allotted by bank first time) number and this number is not traceable with the Bank data base system(customers security purpose).

Thanks

No need to surrender our ATM Card. We can always request bankers to generate a new ATM PIN, if we are not able to use our ATM card due to invalid PIN or if we forget our PIN. Bankers will generate the new PIN and will sent by courier, within a weeks time as mentioned by Kalyani.

I think one can request it through phone banking also. I remember long back when I got a new card I generated a PIN through phone banking and think similarly the PIN can be generated if we forget it.

Now a days one can generate a PIN in the ATM itself. For this one should have one's account number ready for entering and one should also have his registered mobile with him where a OTP will be sent by the bank which is to be entered in the ATM and one can generate an instant PIN there itself.
