Ziraat Bank in Turkey was first to establish Biometric ATM in the world.Ogaki Kyoritsu Bank will become second bank using Palm reading ATMs and first from Asia.It said that the idea was a response to the thousands of tsunami survivors who last year couldn’t access their bank accounts for months because they’d lost all their cards and ID. The bank has branches, mainly in the Gifu Prefecture of central Japan. Gifu Prefecture is about 250 km west of Tokyo.
