BERHAMPUR: More than 10 days after the scrapping of high-value currency notes, heavy rush continues at banks across the district for an exchange of the old notes. Since most of the ATMs have been running dry, people are seen standing in long queues outside the banks for a cash transaction.

The situation in rural pockets is more difficult. Sumandal village under Beguniapada block has only one ATM and a branch of Bank of India. With the ATM being out of cash since past few days, villagers stand in a long queue outside the bank from early morning for withdrawal and exchange of money.

The bank staff have requested the locals to remain calm and wait for their turn for the cash transaction. Meanwhile, apprehending any untoward situation due to the rush, police have been alert.
