With pay day knocking at the door, banks are preparing themselves to face the huge rush that is expected to hit their branches across the state.
United Bank of India (UBI) has already approached Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to provide more cash to meet salary withdrawals and pensions. "We also plan to open additional counters at all our branches," CEO and MD of UBI Pawan Bajaj told PTI.
SBI branches will open before the scheduled time to serve customers, the official said.
Meanwhile, most ATMs across the city were either seen with shutters down or with 'No Cash' notices hung on their doors.
