Choppers continue to bring cash from Patna to Jharkhand
Ranchi, Nov 12: After bringing cash from Reserve Bank in Patna to Ranchi, it was the turn of Jamshedpur and Bokaro to get currency chests from the neighbouring state in the aftermath of demonetisation Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes.
Additional Chief Secretary Amit Khare said one trip each was sent to Jamshedpur and Bokaro after cash was brought from RBI Patna.
Passenger seats were removed to make place for chests stuffed with currencies, an official release quoting Khare said. Money was brought by choppers to Ranchi yesterday. Arrangements were made for tomorrow as well.
There is no dearth of currency notes in the state, but to regulate ATMs, banks required time, the release said. Fifty per cent of ATMs of State Bank of India were operating, but those of Bank of India were yet to function, it said, adding that the BoI general manager was asked to address technical flaws so that its ATMs begin operation at the earliest.
