ATMs short of 100 notes
Due to cash outages caused by higher traffic of non-customers, Banks have been stocking more notes of 500 and 1000. "There is a perceptible increase in ATM withdrawals in the last two months. This might result in shortage of 100 notes in a machine," a senior Andhra Bank official said. On top of that, Central Bank's policy of giving out only fresh notes is also adding to the shortage. While a State Bank of Hyderabad official says that Banks haven't adjusted themselves for the new ATM rule. He also said that the problem of shortage of 100 notes is only in rural areas.
Private Sector Banks are managing the situation much better than the Public sector. An ICICI Bank official said the bank had taken special measures to ensure availability of cash in all denominations in its over 4,500 ATMs. They are uploading one and half times more cash than before.
