Railway Tickets are cheaper now. Govt. has proposed IRCTC (online catering and ticket booking company, subsidiary of Indian Railway) to scrap service charges on booking of tickets done through its website www.irctc.co.in in order to boost prime minister's cashless economy project.

Find ATM where 100 Rupee Notes are available

Govt. has banned 500 and 1000 rupees currency notes in India. People want to find ATM machines where 100 rupee notes are available. Without availability of small denomination currency notes i.e. Rs 100 and Rs 50 notes, people are unable to use money for their day to day expenses.

When people go to bank to exchange their 500 and 1000 rupee notes, bank doesn't exchange currency due to shortage of cash. Also their is a limit of how much currency you can exchange. You can withdraw maximum Rs 2500 per day and 24500 per week, as of now. But even this is not happening due to shortage of 100 rupee notes in banks. Also news of new 500 and 1000 rupee notes of currency is now circulating, but obviously it will take time for new currency notes to replace all the old currency notes.



Thus people are frustrated and despite standing in a queue outside banks and ATM machines for whole day they are unable to get currency notes required for day to day use. In this scenario people are looking for a …
