Resona Holdings Inc. plans to waive automatic teller machine usage fees round the clock starting in November for all customers with group bank cards, Resona officials said Tuesday.

Large banks are expected to follow Resona’s lead in giving up ATM fees to try to hold onto customers. At the moment, some offer entirely free ATM services only to depositors who hold certain amounts of money in their accounts.

Resona customers who deposit or withdraw their money using the banking group’s ATMs on weekday nights, weekends and national holidays are now charged 105 yen.

Beginning in November, there will be no such charges for some 15 million Resona Bank, Saitama Resona Bank and Kinki Osaka Bank customers, according to the officials.
