AGARTALA, Nov 13 (TIWN): Who will make India corruption free if the mindset of people are sealed to remain un-changed. Since the day of Rs. 500 and Rs.1000 were withdrawn, the public are facing hardtimes due to the bankers’ attitudes. However, due to high cooperation of few bank-managers some of the banks had really functioned well, but 90 % banks, especially private banks betrayed the public with lot of arrogance. People are facing hardtimes when they are going to exchange money at those banks, adding pains of non-working condition of ATMs. For example the Purbasha Branch of UCO Bank’s ATM, which maximum times of the year remains non-functional, presently also is in same condition. For not a single day it was opened after PM Modi announced the surgical strike on black-money. However,TIWN visited on Sunday to have a look of the bank.

But unfortunately bankers were less on that Purbasha branch of UCO bank and after half and hour of crossing the lunch period they were not ready to do customer service.

Then after serving few people, they announced that no more cash was left in that bank, resulting huge resentment among the customers. But surprisingly a political leader came with his wife and took many exchanges, when public asked he said, “I submitted my papers in banks before many hours in this bank, as the boy is my friend..!!!”.

This is the condition of India, where Modi is trying to bring revolution. Under CPI-M’s Govt job tradition, dedication has become a rare matter in Tripura.

It’s worthy to mention here that bankers are getting rid of their angers by lawless behavior with the customers as Govt is forcing them to extra work on Sunday.

Few customers were screaming when they were returning back in empty hands from UCO bank. One of the ladies said, “If online video could be made about what they did with us, then their jobs would have gone”. Taking that opportunity one of CPI-M fellow was mimicking at Modi’s “Achhe Din Abhiyaan”.

The Union Finance Ministry on Nov 8 said the move to withdraw Rs 500, Rs 1,000 currency notes is the biggest "surgical strike" by the government to curtail black money in the economy.

 "This is the biggest and the boldest step by the government for containing black money. It is like a surgical strike on black money," tweeted Revenue Secretary Hasmukh Adhia. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in a sudden address to the nation on Tuesday, announced that Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 denomination notes are being withdrawn from midnight and will now become "mere paper".

Modi said this was being done to tackle the menace of black money in the country, which has sapped the economy. The Prime Minister said that the Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 denomination notes can be deposited in banks and post offices, and also exchanged across the bank counter by showing government-issued ID proof.

The decisions come after a cabinet meeting.Expressing concern over the circulation of fake currency notes, Reserve Bank of India Governor Urjit Patel on Tuesday said the apex bank will launch new Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 currency notes from November 10. "RBI will launch new currency notes from November 10," Economic Affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das said while unveiling the new notes.

It was said that no harassment will be faced by public, but due to lack of cooperation from bankers, the public are facing hardtimes here. The central govt should take action as fast as possible.
