Demonetization - Bank Officials asking for bribe to change money

Reported on November 23, 2016 from Moradabad , Uttar Pradesh  ι Report #135824

Hello,
I hope this message finds the reader well.
I am Anup, working in Beijing- China for over 2 years.
My parents live in a small town named Bilari, District - Moradabad, UP.
Ever since demonetization has started, I Have supported the move completely.
However, my parents are senior citizens and have kid/someone younger who can go to banks.
Recently, On aa Sunday, Cash Swapping from Old currency to new currency was allowed to senior citizens and I am grateful to you for that move.
However, my parents and many others were asked to bribe the bank officials.
They told me that the bank officials are charging 10% bribe on each withdrawal.
For some farmers who are not that educated, this commission is going even upto 20%.
My mother told me that its very common in our town and people are being harrassed by bank officials openly.
I have this request to you to please look into it and fire the people involved.
This harassment is not healthy for the country specially for uneducated farmers and senior citizens like my parents.
I can also give you the contact information of my parents and they can even tell you the name of the banks and people involved.
Please stop this harassment.
I appreciate your help in advance. Thank you
