    Pakistan has inaugurated an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) located at a height of 15, 397 feet at Khunjerab Pass in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of the Pakistan Administered Kashmir.

    New Delhi (Spuntik) — The ATM will run on clean energy and serve not only army personnel posted in the region but also tourists visiting the picturesque region of Gilgit-Baltistan.

    The highest ATM in the world will not only serve army personnel posted in this region but will be a boon for the tourists visiting this picturesque region.

    The ATM operated by the National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) was inaugurated by Lt General (Retd.) Zafar Iqbal, Chief Minister of Gilgit-Baltistan.
