NBP Named in Guinness Book for the World’s Highest ATM at Khunjerab Pass

The National Bank of Pakistan, (NBP) set a new world record by installing the world’s highest ATM (automated teller machine) at the Pak-China border, Khunjerab Pass.

The ATM has been installed at a height of 16,007 feet above sea level, making it world’s highest-altitude ATM anywhere in the world. The award is in recognition with the bank’s efforts in bringing superior technology, products and services to their customers in all areas of Pakistan, including the northern, rural and suburb sectors.

This is the second time NBP has been awarded a position in Guinness World Record, the first time was in July 2009 for planting over 532,887 mangrove saplings in a day at Keti Bander.

Speaking at the occasion,  Saeed Ahmad, President, NBP, said:

“We are very proud to have won this well recognised international title for installing the world’s highest altitude ATM.”

‘This title reaffirms the strength and uniqueness of the technologies that have made NBP as the undisputed leader in ATMs around the country. With that, I would like to thank my team for their commitment in making our vision a reality and NBP as one of the foremost provider of financial banking services in the country.”

“The Guinness World Records title further reflects National Bank of Pakistan’s commitment to place our customers’ needs at the center of our priorities, we will support our customer at every step of the way and cover vast distances to be there and provide convenience to them. This is a key component of NBP’s service offering, and we are delighted to have been recognized at a global level for our customer-centric approach,” he further added.

The area is developing as a major tourist attraction with millions of visitors from all over the country and increasing numbers from our friendly neighboring country China. The National Bank hopes the ATM will serve the increasing needs of tourists visiting Khunjerab Pass, bordering Pakistan and China and will continue to invest in more ventures like these to cater to the growing financial requirements of people across Pakistan.

    Woh tu theek hai but why are you posting a news that’s more than a year old. Thori apni research bhi banti hai, or just write the article because a couple of news papers wrote the same article.

      Exactly. I was there in July and ATM was functional. They are writing about it now.

    I’d rather term it as a sign of ever rising inflation and lack of progress of economy and monetary policy. When all the world has abandoned cash and adopted plastic money, we are getting more proud everyday for such childish successes which mean nothing to the world.
    Anyway, keep enjoying.
