Senator Lito Lapid has slammed greedy banks seeking to jack up their automated teller (ATM) fees to as much as P30 per transaction or triple the prevailing rate of P10.

“Wag na sana nating dagdagan pa ang pasanin ng ating mga kababayan, lalo na ng mga manggagawa na kakarampot na nga ang kinikita ay mababawasan pa,” said Lapid in a statement.

“Paano pa natin mahihikayat ang mas maraming Pilipino na maglagak ng kanilang pera sa bangko kung patuloy nating tataasan ang bayad sa simpleng pagwi-withdraw ng kanilang pera sa bangko?” he added.

Lapid cautioned the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) to make sure that it would protect the interest of millions of working class bank depositors as banks move to increase their fees following the lifting of a six-year moratorium on ATM fee adjustments.

“Hiling ko po sa Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas na pag-aralang mabuti ang usaping ito at nawa’y isaalang-alang nila ang kapakanan ng ating mga mamamayan na pinakaapektado ng dagdag bayarin na ito,” he said.
