West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday described as an “eyewash”, the Centre’s announcement of increasing the cash withdrawal limit from ATMs and demanded that all restrictions be withdrawn immediately. “Government eye wash announcement. Money not available in banks. All restrictions should be withdrawn immediately #DeMonetisation,” Banerjee said in a tweet on Monday.

The Reserve Bank on Monday doubled the daily ATM withdrawal limit to Rs 10,000 but retained the weekly ceiling at Rs 24,000. RBI however doubled the weekly withdrawal limit from current accounts to Rs 1 lakh from Rs 50,000 – a move which will ease cash position of small traders.

          Mamata seems to be ranting because she has lost a lot of her black loot . 10000 was the withdrawal limit from ATMs till a few a years back. 24000 weekly limit means about one lakh per month. How many Indians need to spend one lakh cash per month. if they have a card they can use it for higher spends.
