Mysuru: Narendra Modi’s ban on Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes is being lauded all over. But a few problems which have arisen as “part and parcel” of the reform seem to have affected the day to day transactions and life of a common man.

Mysuru zoo on high alert as bird flu spreads rapidly-1Petrol bunk owners and employees had a tough time managing their customers who had come with Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes which was banned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday.  The ordeal was even worse in rural areas.

S K Dinesh, Honorary President of Petroleum Dealers Association said, “Most of the petrol bunks especially those in rural areas faced a lot of hardship. The change which we had was almost saturated within few hours of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement. For just hundred rupees petrol, most of the customers started to give Rs 500 to Rs 1000. Due to lack of change we had requested the customers to tender exact change like if they want petrol for hundred rupees they should pay Rs 100, if they don’t have change they should fill for Rs 500. The problem was even more confounding since most vehicles in rural areas don’t have capacity to fill petrol for Rs 500 and on the other side we don’t have enough change to give them back. After going through these problems I started consulting banks for change”. There are nearly 250 bunks in Mysuru, Mandya and Chamarajanagar. In Mysuru city alone there are nearly 100 petrol bunks.

N Divyesh, Convenor, National Real Estate Development Council, Mysuru branch said, “Really it is a welcome move on the part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In fact, it was very much the need of the hour. Definitely with this decision Indian economy will improve and also it is a step towards a fair life”.

 Mysuru zoo too had to face the heat as most of the visitors showed up with Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes which led to shortage of change which forced the zoo authorities to close zoo. But later after visitors complained to higher authorities, forest minister called zoo authorities and instructed them to open the zoo.

The hotels owners too had tough time in managing and convincing their customers.
