The Hindu The kiosk also has CCTV cameras and alarm system, which would alert bank officials and the nearest police station in an emergency.

The ATM kiosk in N.R. Square, where a bank employee was attacked in November, is being renovated.

The Corporation Bank ATM kiosk is being painted and strengthened. The ATM machine, which had not been working for the past week, has been fixed.

Following the early-morning attack on the woman, Jyothi Uday, while she was withdrawing money, the city police instructed banks to implement security measures at all ATM kiosks.

These included immediately hiring guards, as well as installing alarm systems and CCTV cameras within 45 days.

According to a guard at the N.R. Square kiosk, three unarmed guards are posted there in shifts of eight hours each. They have brought in a wooden plank for defence, a tactic employed by many ATM guards in the city.

The kiosk also has CCTV cameras and alarm system, which would alert bank officials and the nearest police station in an emergency.

However, a Corporation bank representative said that though the external CCTV camera had been installed, it posed a challenge as it required large storage capacity.

The bank is yet to address the locking and unlocking system for the rolling shutter. This system had come in for criticism as the assailant had pulled down the shutters during and after the attack.
