AN ATM card payment system has been introduced to employees including teachers of the Ministry of Education in Yangon, Mandalay and Nay Pyi Taw, enabling employees, especially teachers, to draw their salary at their convenience.
As a trial period, more than 5000 cards have been made for faculty members and teachers from universities, colleges, State High Schools and educational employees in the three cities.
“We feel that we have caught up with the modern age as we can draw our salaries from ATM machines” said a teacher.
The move is aimed at helping teachers and employees overcome various difficulties that may arise on pay day, said Daw Swe Zin Win, General Manager of the Card Department of KBZ Bank.
The bank has future plans to grant ATM cards to teachers nationwide.
