“I had refrained from going to ATMs and banks so far due to the rush and long queues there. I could withdraw cash here very easily today. This service should be extended at all such kind of stores,” said Sandeep Kaushik, who visited a Big Bazaar outlet on Thursday.

Some, however, faced inconvenience after debit cards of certain banks like HDFC, ICICI, Punjab National Bank were not accepted by the system. (IANS)
