ATMs go dry in UP, MP, Bihar and Gujarat
New Delhi: The scene of cash crunch post demonetisation in 2017 is back, it seems so. Media reports said four states, including Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat, are facing a massive cash crunch.
Reports said people are either standing in long queues outside the ATM or are going home empty-handed with no currency in cash dispensing machines in these four states.
Reserve Bank of India officials reportedly said the problem was because of huge demand of cash owing to the festive season. They assured that the problem would normalise in a couple of days.
Reports said, owing to the crisis, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath called for a meeting with officials to sort out the problem.
Smelling a conspiracy Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said there was enough flow of currency but somehow Rs 2000 notes were vanishing.
