The representatives of the Federation of Andhra Pradesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FAPCCI) on Thursday met Hyderabad police commissioner Anurag Sharma and requested him not to seize cash from traders, if they produce an identity proof.

FAPCCI president Devendra Surana and secretary general V Rajeshwara Rao told the commissioner that in view of security reasons, police were carrying out inspections at various  places. They alleged that police were troubling those carrying cash and were also seizing money during the checks.

The representatives told the commissioner that it is necessary for the people from industry and business to carry cash for their daily financial transactions or to deposit in banks. “We requested the  commissioner to allow us to carry cash as we would produce a letter of identity from the company or PAN card or an identity card related to the business,” said the representatives.

The FAPCCI representatives claimed that the city police commissioner immediately agreed to their suggestion.
