BOONI: Huge rush of people was seen outside branches of different banks due disruptions in the working of their cash dispensing system on the first working day of the week.
The automated teller machines (ATMs) were either down or faced technical faults intermitantly.
A bank official told ChitralToday that they received less cash from Chitral town at the start of the month when they need to pay salaries to government and private employees.
Another reason for the disruption was unavailability of electricity in some of the banks that have no alternative power supply system.
People were inconvenienced by waiting outside the banks in the biting cold and called upon the authorities of bank to improve the working of their cash dispensing system. –Sher Afgan
