About Us

The Talking ATM India website is operated by Xavier's Resource Centre for the Visually Challenged (XRCVC), an integral department of St. Xavier's College - Autonomous, Mumbai.

XRCVC serves as a national advocacy and support center for individuals with blindness and low vision. We collaborate proactively with regulators, banks, and vendors to enhance accessibility in ATMs and digital banking platforms. Our innovative approach to Talking ATMs has led to widespread deployment of accessible ATMs across India since 2012.

This website marks the pioneering effort in providing a web locator for Talking ATMs in India. Engineered with cutting-edge client-server technology, it ensures seamless navigation and swift search capabilities. The platform is fully accessible with both computer and mobile-based screen reader programs.

This website was founded by Prashant Naik and Saidarshan Bhagat in 2014, with a mission to deliver location data to blind users in a convenient and accessible format.

We are proud to have the support of the Indian Banks' Association (IBA) in our endeavor. Our efforts to provide locations data in an accessible and convenient manner to the blind users are supported by IBA.
