The Reserve Bank f India on Thursday released a statement reassuring the public that there was a sufficient supply of notes consequent production which had started nearly two months ago. The RBI requested the public to not panic in this situation or hoard currency notes. Earlier this month, the Indian public went into a frenzy following Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement of scrapping Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes overnight on November 8.

Following the opening of banks and ATMs two days later, long queues were witnessed outside banks and ATMs to deposit, exchange and withdraw money. The situation has been so that people have been reported dead due to the long queues and the demonetisation scheme. While the move has been applauded widely for being a bold step to curb down the flow of black money, it has also been criticised severely for the lack of a proper plan for the distribution of the new currency and extremely poor execution.

The citizens remain in a constant state of argument over the effectiveness of the move and its effect on common people. Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself has urged the people to be patient and bear with the inconveniences for 59 days for a better future. Although, the poor execution of the distribution of the new currency seems to have created a situation of panic. This is the second time in a matter of 10 days that the RBI has come up with such a statement in an attempt to reduce the panic amongst people.

    For last three days, there is no cash in any ATMs located in Sector 5, Vaishlai,Ghaiziabad and also no cash in any of the 6 atms. located at Vaishali Metro Station Ghaziabad (NCR). Such poor handling of post demonetization scheme is inviting peoples anger at Govt. Please do something urgently and replenish all above said ATMs with cash urgently.

    Its a lie, if there is enough cash, why there is a cut in exchange amount, why there is limit on withdrawals.

    Govt has to bring more liquidity in giving exchanged notes like 500 ,100,,50,, and 10.Just informing 2000/- is ONLY AVAILABLE is Not correct as 2000/- note does nt have legal tender as RBI thinks....it is just A PAPER ...UNLESS they give 500 new notes and 100 this problem. Will not get solved ...I have about 5 LAKHS in SAVINGS ACCOUNT in five banks but no money in lose cash to buy vegetables. dr Rao Pune

    Yes .. its not a war like situation, use debit /credit cards..lower your cash expenses. every one wants reforms but not at own cost. Keep patience. From today onwards Cash withdrawal & exchange lines will reduce due to correction action taken.

    It seems that govt. and RBI are losing credibility as people are finding them unbelievable.If it is true that there is no shortage of currency notes or legal tender what is the reason that Mamata JI was denied information she sought on the same subject? Why there is so poor distribution and limit for swapping has been reduced from 4.5K to 2K? Why most of the ATMs are lying defunct? Why there is serpentine queues on each bank even on this tenth day? Why the situation has reached such a boiling point? Why no rich or upper or middle cl people are seen in the line? Are all honest or without black money and those standing in the queues are ders of black money? Is it not true that 86% of total money resides in denomination of Rs 1000 and 500 which means does not represent black money? Is it not an futile exercise where majority people have been subjected to unwanted humiliation,sufferings, and financial losses? No wise man would support this stupid move by a stupid govt. head an stupid person.
