How National Financial Switch works



NFS has established a strong and sustainable operational model with in-house capabilities and today can be compared at par with other major and well-established switch networks. NFS is the largest network shared Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) in India. It aims to interconnect all the ATM’s in the country and facilitate easy banking to the users. NFS connects the ATM of member banks under a single network.


  • NFS has introduced sub-membership model which enables smaller, regional banks including RRBs and local co-operative banks to participate in the ATM network.
  • The Dispute Management System (DMS), has benefitted members with high operational efficiency and ease of online transaction life cycle management (chargeback, representment, etc.) in the network apart from being compliant with local regulatory requirements.
  • NPCI has also tied up with International card schemes like Discover Financial Service (DFS), Japan Credit Bureau (JCB) and China Union Pay International (CUPI) which allows their cardholders to use ATMs connected to NFS network.
  • The Fraud Risk Management (FRM) solution is offered as a value added service to monitor transactions (in real time) and to generate alert or decline the transaction in the NFS network
