Shops to dispense cash up to Rs.2000 through card-swipe machines from today
Cash up to Rs.2000 will be dispensed through swiping of debit card at shops, malls and all showrooms across the country where POS machines from any of the banks are already available. POS machines are the machines which are generally used for debit or credit card transactions.
The government on Thursday had allowed dispensing cash of up to Rs 2,000 through debit card swipe at select petrol pumps. State-run news channel Doordarshan announced that 2,500 petrol pumps would dispense Rs 2,000 cash per person per day in order to end the ongoing hustle in the banks and ATMs.
This service has been launched for the convenience of the customers who have not been able to withdraw money from the banks or the ATMs because of the long queues or cashless ATM Centres.
Petrol pumps have been accepting old and now-defunct currency notes of 500 and 1,000 denominations and the same will continue till November 24, 2016.
