In a shocking incident, an ATM counter in Maharashtra’s Nagpur started dispensing five times the amount of cash withdrawn. The glaring technical glitch first came to light when an individual got five notes of Rs 500, after opting to withdraw only Rs 500. After trying to withdraw Rs 500 again, the customer, to his disbelief, got Rs 2500 in cash instead.
