The ATM is a stagnant electronic machine i.e. it is not easily relocated from one surface area to another. It is a machine that is purposely built for easing stress and reducing the long queues in the banks and other financial institutions. The ATM issues instructions with several alternatives and options in the terms of payment, whether the transaction is about checking balance, withdrawal and so on.
