World's Highest ATM in Sikkim

On December 12, 2003, UTI Bank inaugurated its ATM at Thegu, near the Nathu-la Pass in Sikkim, which is at 13,200 feet above sea level. That makes it an ATM at the highest location in India. NCR Corporation provided the technology to build this heat-generating ATM, which is capable of handling rough weather and sub-zero temperatures. The ATM caters to Indian army personnel -- especially of the 63rd Mountain Brigade, which has its headquarters there and tourists.
