Nirmal: People who supported the Union government’s move of demonetisation of Rs.500/- and Rs.1000/- notes to curb the black money, seems to be losing their patience with each passing day.
They are forced to wait for hours at the ATMs and banks across the district but are not getting their money. The situation has not changed even a month after the demonetization. When The Hans India’s team enquired from different traders, daily wage labours, private school managements, small business holders, specially farmers the hardships that they were facing were indescribable.
When this reporter inquired a farmer Arjun from Brahmeshwar village, Kubeer Mandal of Nirmal District he lashed out at the Union government’s decision.
“I sold 10 quintals of cotton and amount was transferred to my account, but I can’t withdraw the amount from banks, I did not even get 10, 000/- in a week. How could I pay wages to labours who are waiting at my home.
Though I welcome the move , the government could have planned it better”, he said. As fee collection in private schools is very poor, school management are unable to pay salaries to teachers in many schools across the district.
Speaking to The Hans, Nirmal district Private School Association President Srinivas Goud said. “Situation at schools across the district is so difficult, parents are unable to pay fee post demonetization and most of the schools have not paid salaries to their staff”, he said.
iran, a private school teacher in Kalloor ,Nirmal district said, “I am suffering a lot, my child has been suffering for health ailment, I have not been paid by the school management, though management is ready to transfer amount to my account, I am unable to withdraw money because ATMs of rural areas are not operational.” - He lamented. Situation at Bhainsa town and surrounding villagers is pretty miserable.
