Hiraben Dani, a pensioner, said she could not withdraw
money due to huge rush at banks. Her husband, Pradip Dani, said he has curtailed family expenditure so as to limit cash withdrawal.
“I am exhausted. I went to the bank to withdraw money but had to return (empty-handed) as I started feeling dizzy standing in the queue. I don’t even have money for day-to-day expenditure. It is a tough situation,” Hiraben said.
“We have curtailed expenditure so that we can save cash.
We try to stay indoors to save money. There is no separate queue for senior citizens which makes withdrawal difficult,” Hiraben’s husband said.
Meanwhile, a branch of another leading nationalised bank downed its shutters even as people queued up, saying it exhausted all the cash yesterday afternoon and has not received fresh supply.
“I have been standing here since morning but the bank says it does not have any idea when it will receive cash. I need money for daily use, so I will have to take leave from office to withdraw money,” said Vipul Patel, who stood in the queue outside the bank branch in Vadodara. PTI KA PD RMT GK SMN
