Meanwhile, long queues were seen outside banks and ATMs across the nation for the fourth consecutive day.

People faced a great deal of inconvenience as several ATMs went dry due to cash crunch.

In a bid to ease the situation, government has extended the use of old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes for utility bills till November 14.

In a major attempt to tackle hoarding of black money, corruption and terror financing, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on November 8, announced that all Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 rupee notes would cease to be valid in all forms of transactions.
