Demonetisation Day Seven: Do you see any wealthy people standing here, ask customers
The disillusionment is palpable on Day Seven
As demonetisation entered the seventh day today customers continue to queue up before banks and ATMs.
The government today again announced a few steps to improve the cash availability and curb the crowd coming to the bank.
Department of economic affairs secretary Shaktikanta Das today said the banks will use indelible link to identify the customers who are making withdrawals. This is aimed at curbing multiple transactions and putting a stop to tax evaders using the poor to whiten their ill-gotten wealth.
The government had earlier announced other measures to improve liquidity in the system, which has not made much of a difference to the customers.
As we went around the ATMs today, disillusionment was palpable despite the improvement in the situation.
"Do you see any wealthy people standing in the queue here?" asks a customer.
