THE ALL India Motor Transport Congress (AIMTC) has warned that the supply of essential supplies like milk, vegetables, fruits, medicines will get “affected with immediate effect” if the government does not raise the withdrawal limit of money from accounts. “With acute liquidity and financial crunch, the transportation services (both cargo and passenger segment) in the country are poised to come to a standstill. Drivers and tourists are starving without food on the highways with no help forthcoming from any quarters. Thus, the limit of withdrawal from our accounted money should be increased sufficiently and dhabas on the highways must also accept old notes,” Malkit Singh, AIMTC member, said.
