After talking to their respective bank managers the families can get the one time cash of Rs 24,000 on priority bases, without standing in a queue, District Magistrate DK Singh in Muzaffarnagar on Thursday.

The step was taken after several cash-strapped families on Wednesday demonstrated outside the District Magistrate's office in Muffarnagar, demanding adequate money to prepare for the upcoming weddings of their kin in wake of the demonetisation move.

The protesters waved their wedding cards during the demonstration last evening, alleging that they were not able to withdraw cash from their bank accounts leading to "great problems" while making arrangements for the weddings.

They submitted a memorandum to the DM and demanded that they be allowed to withdraw reasonable cash from their bank accounts for the ceremonies.
