‘We are made to stand in queues like beggars to withdraw our own money’

Still there’s no assurance that there will be cash in the bank till he reaches the counter. He doesn’t have money to buy medicines or carry out medical tests.

Another government servant narrated his tale that he stood in queues for many days by availing half-day leave from work but failed to withdraw amount. RBI released 1800 Cr but no one has the idea where the money has gone, because banks daily put up no cash notice after two hours of transactions.
