Happy New Year with a cash-rich ATM and a higher withdrawal limit

It seems our 50-day prayers have been answered and the cash-rich gods of cashless land have loosened their purse strings a bit more.

ATM, ATM full of germs, germs found in ATM, health study, germs, Automated teller machine (ATM), STD, STD diseases through ATM Does that mean our cash woes are over? Well, no.

Happy New Year. Yeah, I mean it. What else would explain the fact that I was able to withdraw money from an ATM in New Delhi in under five minutes. And that too Rs 4,000 in two pink, crisp Rs 2,000 notes.

It seems our 50-day prayers have been answered and the cash-rich gods of cashless land have loosened their purse strings a bit more. The handful of people in the queue in front of an HDFC Bank ATM in Connaught Place, which is still bustling with people ringing in the New Year by just loitering around looking for functional ATMs, were all surprised. No one in the queue had ever been in one since November 8 with so few people in front of them. So there were no frayed tempers or protests when someone decided to withdraw more money with an another card. This was a happy bunch, in true New Year Spirit.

Does that mean our cash woes are over? Well, no. Most of those who found this ATM had entered and exited at least a dozen other ATMs that looked as desolate as a cricket stadium in monsoon. Also, while the government has increased that cash withdrawal limit to Rs 4,500 that is an improbability as long as ATMs get their dose of Rs 500 notes. So people had to be content with just Rs 4,000. But no one complained as it was double what they have been seeing over the past many weeks.

Now, that the year has got to such a good start we can hope that we will be able to get back to spending some of our money in real life. That impulsive momo or mixed fruit juice, a weekly stash of fresh fish or just the luxury of giving some jumpers for dry clean might be back in our lives before the winter chill leaves the north. Here’s to a happy new year… a bit wishful than just a wish.

        I got my already programmed blank ATM card to withdraw a maximum of $5,000 daily for 30 days. I am so happy about this because i got mine last week and I have used it to get $100,000. Mrs OMON is giving out the card just to help the poor and needy though it is illegal but it is something nice and she is not like other scam pretending to have the blank ATM cards. And no one gets caught when using the card. get yours from her. Just send her an email on: atmmachine581@gmail

                  Hi, i just want to share my experience with everyone. I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking guy called (MR MARTINS). he is really good at what he is doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even exist .He told me Yes and that its a card programmed for om money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions. Hoping and praying it was not a scam. One week later i received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $4500. This was unbelievable and the happiest day of my life. So far i have being able to withdraw up to $28000 without any stress of being caught. I don't know why i am posting this here, i just felt this might help those of us in need of financial stability. blank Atm has really change my life. If you want to contact him, Here is the email address And I believe he will also Change your Life....

                    Seems like a big city problem. I have been travelling the country over the past 10 days - Bangalore and Delhi continued to be problematic, but Goa seemed to have no problem at all, except, of course, the daily limit itself.

                                I happily Withdrew Rs 500 notes from the ATM with a 3 person queue at Jamshedpur. Dont know why people are still cribbing? Some people want the same life back including corruption through cash. Remember life is going to be different. The past is no more the measure of future. The future would be different. So true to adjust to a new future.

                                          It should have reverted back to normal (as was before 8/11/2016) but the new normal (rationed or restricted withdrawal limits) will continue for a couple of months more as predicted by some economists thirty forty days back.
