RAIPUR  : Following the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) directive over new restriction on depositing more than `5000 in old notes, the bank account holders explaining their deferment had cited the “trust” they had reposed on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s assurance allowing to deposit the old currencies till December 30. 


“What is the basis of inquiring now when the nation was assured of December 30 as the deadline”, was the question of many customers to bank officials.

The bank managers stated that they were initially perplexed but politely refused to consider the “unacceptable” statements. “Doctor advised me not to stand in a long queue as I am a heart patient”, no sooner this assertion came from a customer, the bank manager responded, “No issues, get me the doctor’s certificate”.

“My wife gave me the amount last month but I just forgot” was one customer’s reasoning. “I was out of station for the past few weeks,” another customer stated.
