A growing number of automated teller machines (ATMs) now dispense only $50 notes and not $10 bills - to the annoyance of some customers.

Checks with the three local banks indicate that OCBC is the only bank which still issues $10 bills at all its roughly 600 ATMs.

Fewer than 2 per cent of United Overseas Bank's (UOB) more than 600 ATMs do not issue $10 notes.

But Singapore's biggest bank, DBS Bank, which also operates POSB and its ATMs, declined to give the number or proportion of its ATMs issuing only larger bills.
