The bank manager said that van has not come to the branch since last two days and so there were problems in disbursing cash to the people who had come to bank on Wednesday.
The manager gave an undertaking that the bank will prepare the list of those who had come for cash withdrawal and after receiving the cash they will be provided their money on Thursday.
The bank officials also urged people to cooperate with the bank at this time of crisis and help maintain law and order. Meanwhile, NGO Shramajivi Sanghatana’s chief Vivek Pandit said it is exactly a month since demonetisation was announced but the situation is yet to come to normal.
