New Delhi: As rush in banks and ATMs due to demonetisation continues, Government employees belonging to Group-C on Monday started receiving Rs. 10,000 in cash as advance of their salary for the month of November.
At least 1,000 Group-C employees working in the Home Ministry were also given Rs. 10,000 each as their salary advance.
Government employees of Group-C of all Ministries, Departments and associate organisations are given the salary advance in cash, a senior Home Ministry official said. In the Home Ministry, those who availed the facility got the cash in the denomination of Rs. 2,000 and Rs. 100. Four make-shift counters have been installed in the Home Ministry. The facility is also offered in the adjoining Finance Ministry in the North Block.
There has been heavy rush and long queues in banks and ATMs ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced on November 8 that Rs. 1,000 and Rs. 500 notes would no longer be legal tender.
