capture the details of ATMs in registration certificate as a ‘place of business’?

As per RBI guidelines, Banks can use

third party ATMs, Business

Correspondents (BC), Customer Service Points (CSP) or third party warehouses. Are Banks required to include these third party places also in their GST registration?

No. Third party places are neither places of business nor fixed establishments from where Banks ordinarily carry on their business. These are independent service providers to the Bank which are subject to GST. Thus, these places are not required to be declared as place of business by the Bank.
