By Debasish Banik

BADARPUR, Nov 13 - In view of the massive shortage of new notes of Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 denominations in SBI branches and post offices of the entire Barak Valley, the Regional Manager of the State Bank of India of Barak Valley, Pradeep Kumar Paul has earnestly requested the people to keep calm and remain patient, as the crisis is purely temporary.

In an exclusive interview to ANN Service from Badarpur, Paul said that he though he was deeply affected by this financial crisis before the people, he can do nothing, except give �assurances� and ask the people to �keep calm and patience�. Paul said that the ongoing crisis at bank branches and post offices will be removed shortly, as sufficient new notes will arrive soon. �Though I acknowledge sincerely that the people are going through tremendous difficulties but in the greater interest of the whole nation, they should keep patience till the crisis is over, as assured by the Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Prime Minister Narendra Modi�, he said.

Paul also said that he was enthused by the response of the people in depositing their old notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 in their bank and post offices accounts, standing in long queues.

In reply to another question of this media person, Paul said that there are 40 SBI branches in the Barak Valley, and the total numbers of ATMs is 207. � It has not been possible for us to supply currencies in all these branches and ATMs, as we don�t have sufficient supplies of Rs 2000 and Rs 500 denominations,� he said.

Meanwhile, post offices in different parts of Barak Valley are overflowing with people depositing money. But till now, these post offices have failed to distribute new notes of Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 as these notes have not yet been supplied to the post offices. The normal life of the people has been totally disrupted. The Karimganj district and police administration have informed that they will take stern action, if someone tries black marketing of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 invalid notes.
