Severe cash crunch situation in ATMs reported in several states of India including Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and few areas of Delhi. News agency ANI quoted people in Delhi as saying, “We are facing cash crunch. Most of the ATMs are not dispensing cash, the ones which are dispensing, have only Rs 500 notes. We are facing difficulty, don’t know what to do.”
Amid all this, people on Twitter shared their reactions. While many expressed their anger, some called it as a flashback of demonetisation which witnessed every single person queued up at ATMs for days. Here see how people have reacted on social media.
There used to be dry days for alcohol. Now there are dry days for cash. #CashCrunch

Feels like #Demonetisation again. Many ATMs empty. The one near my home is cashless for over an year now. I never found cash there anytime I visited. Feeling cash crunch again.
