The dilemma of RBI:
- The Reserve Bank of India ,though has set the withdraw limit of Rs 24000 thousand for the people, the banks have been unable to provide the amount to the withdrawers.
- Due to the cash crunch in the banks they have been unable to follow the orders of RBI and the common man still remains the sufferer.
- Another reason of this cash crunch is holding of money by the households.
- According to the banking sources there are few withdrawers who come to take away cash every week despite having money at homes.
- The cash crunch is also a problem due to in-liquidity of currency. People are holding money at homes instead of spending it which has increased the unavailability of cash in the economy.
- It may be recalled the DEA secretary Shaktikanta Das had himself requested the countrymen to spend as much money as possible.
