India tells its banks to get Windows XP off ATMs – in 2019!

ATMs are generally

supported by a specific team unrelated to "normal" desktops

supported by an outsourcer/generic ATM provider (even in India) outside the bank entirely

have peculiar change control processes that make fixes difficult to apply.

are remote so when something goes wrong a physical visit is required

However I would support the position that they need to get sorted out eventually. Simply abandoning them does not seem an appropriate management tactic!
