Bank unions demand adequate notes to meet cash needs of public

Reserve Bank should increase the supply of notes to meet increasing demand for money, says bank unions

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Long queues outside banks a 'serious issue', says SC

As staff faces the wrath of fatigued customers amid continuing shortages following the scrapping of high-value currency, unions have demanded that the Reserve increase the supply of notes to meet increasing demand for money.

There are rumours that branches are hoarding but it is far from the truth as received by banks is being passed on to the customers, backed National Organisation of Workers (NOBW) said in a statement.



"We should understand that banks are not printing the notes but whatever is provided by the they are doing their best to facilitate the public," Vice-President Ashwani Rana said.

Expressing dismay over comments of politicians on bankers, he said they should refrain from provoking the public against bankers by issuing irresponsible statements.

The Centre from November 9 scrapped high value 500 and 1000 rupee notes to crack down on black money, leading to unending queues at banks and ATMs across the country.

According to the All India Employees' Association (AIBEA), the next one week to 10 days are going to be much more tense because huge number of employees, workers and retirees/pensioners would throng the branches to draw their salary.

If fails to provide adequate cash, it may lead to serious issues of law and order, it said in a letter written to the central bank.

Besides, a majority of the ATMs are non-functional which will add to the congestion inside the branches, it said.

AIBEA also said that is issuing umpteen number of instructions every day and staff is unable to cope with these instructions instantly until they are duly intimated about it from their respective Head Offices.

At times, these instructions create more problems than solutions, it added. It also said that 'No Cash' board outside branches is leading to erosion of reputation of banks.

"We are afraid, there would be lot of undue pressures, tensions, conflicts and clashes in the branches and we seek the intervention of IBA to advice the Banks to ask for proper police protection in branches to provide proper security to the staff," it said.

All India officers' Confederation (AIBOC) also said there is a need to increase supply by RBI.

"We also request IBA to take up with to ensure adequate supply of currency notes to all Banks without any discrimination, which allegation is also doing a lot of rounds that some few private banks get more supply of notes from at the cost of public sector Banks," AIBOC General Secretary Harvinder Sigh said.As staff faces the wrath of fatigued customers amid continuing shortages following the scrapping of high-value currency, unions have demanded that the Reserve increase the supply of notes to meet increasing demand for money.
