An ATM in Nagpur district was dis- pensing five times extra cash to customers due to a manual error during refill.
A man reportedly tried to withdraw 500 from the ATM but, to his surprise, the machine dispensed five currency notes of Rs 500 denomination. He repeated the process and got Rs 2,500 while trying to withdraw Rs500.
The incident was reported on Wednesday at an Automated Teller Machine of a private bank in
Khaparkheda town, located around 30 km from Nagpur city.
The news of ATM dispensing five times extra cash spread like wildfire and soon a huge crowd gathered around it to try their luck.
A bank customer later alerted the police who rushed to the spot and shut the ATM vestibule, said an official.
The police informed the bank about the “glitch” and subsequent rush at the ATM. It was found that the glitch was nothing but a human error during the refill.
The currency notes of Rs 500 denomination were erroneously kept in the ATM tray meant to dispense notes of Rs 100 denomination, the official from Khaperkheda police station said.
