A woman was shocked to her core to find nearly 100 crore rupees in her Jan Dhan Account in a meerut branch of a state-run bank. This Monday, she was forced to sought intervention from the Prime Minister Office (PMO) as the bank officials did not attend to her complaint from a long time and kept asking her to come on some other date to resolve the issue.
Sheetal Yadav maintained a Jan Dhan account with the State Bank of India’s Sharda Road branch. On December 18, she went to a ATM of ICICI bank located near her house for the purpose of withdrawing money from her account and was shocked to see that her account was showing a balance of Rs. 99,99,99,394.
Not able to believe it, Sheetal said she asked to a person standing next to her in the line to check the statement and he also confirmed the same amount. Still hard to believe, she went to an another nearby ATM of Yes Bank to tally the statement and found the same balance.
She continued to visit her bank for two days but the staff did not attend to her complaint and asked her to come after a day when the branch manager would assist her to rectify the matter. When she again went to the bank, she was sent back under another pretext.
Then Sheetal Yadav decided to write a complaint to the PMO with the help of her husband, Ziledar Singh.
Ziledar Singh, who works in a transformer manufacturing company, said that his wife, who works in the packaging department of a factory, draws Rs. 5,000 per month while he also works on a meagre salary. They were shocked when this huge amount came into her account.
Frustrated over the local bank staff’s attitude, Ziledar Singh said he asked an educated person to help them to send a mail to the PMO.
“We have posted a mail on December 26 to the PMO to help us in solving our problem from where about Rs. 100 crore came into the account where the maximum limit of deposit is restricted to Rs. 50,000 only,” he said, showing the ATM slips and bank passbook to the media.
