Lodging a protest in Jaipur at Ambedkar Circle, the association claimed the government has failed to bring the normalcy even as the 50-day deadline is about to get over. It also alleged that RBI, with its repeated statements, has put the bank employees under tremendous pressure, affecting their professional and public lives.

Alleging that only 30 per cent of the required currency was being given to the banks, State Bank Employees Association General Secretary Mahesh Mishra said in a statement that the families of affected bank employees should be compensated.
