Bengaluru: In a bid to help the common man, Canara Bank in Bengaluru rolled out its mobile ATM so that people could withdraw new currency notes without forming endless queues outside banks.
On Sunday evening, the blue bus, which helped around 800 customers withdraw Rs. 8 lakh worth of cash, was seen at MG Road!
“I was taking a stroll in the evening on MG Road and found that most of the ATMs were running out of cash. So, I got our mobile ATM, which serves Bengaluru Rural customers, pressed into service,” Mr. M M Chiniwar, Canara Bank General Manager (Circle Office), told.
The bus that arrived at 5.30 pm, eased people’s anxieties, as they could finally skip standing outside a bank to withdraw cash.
Mr. Chiniwar also said that by Tuesday or Wednesday, sufficient cash will reach banks and ATMs which will help reduce the insane rush of people we are seeing every day.
