Despite the currency flow going back to the pre-demonetisation levels, people are facing difficulty in withdrawing cash from ATMs. Due to shortage of cash in ATMs the routine works of common man hampered badly as the ATMs are not shelling currency notes. Since the amount of currency put out by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and government printing presses is adequate for normal transactions, bankers believe there is hoarding of the Rs 2,000 notes. We have visited several ATMs today as well, to no avail, ' people in Bhopal said. "The temporary shortage caused by "sudden and unusual increase" in some areas is being tackled quickly", the minister tweeted. There have been complaints that either the ATMs don't have cash or they are not working. "We need to pay for the admission of children and purchase groceries and vegetables", a resident of Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh was quoted by ANI as saying.

He was referring to news reports of ATMs running out of cash at some places in the state. The ministry officials also held consultations with state officials and bank heads in the wake of shortage of cash. "We are facing difficulty, don't know what to do", they said.

The situation has been the same since 15 days. "But notes of Rs 2,000 are missing from the market". Stating that this is a phenomenon experienced by "all banks" since November 2017, Purnima said, "We are unable to refill ATMs because people are not depositing in banks".
