People of a Rajasthan Town Woke up to a Giving ATM. This is What Happened Next.

What would you do if an ATM in your locality started dispensing 5 times the amount of money requested?

This is what happened on Monday morning at Sikar in Rajasthan. When people realised that their friendly neighbourhood ATM was being friendlier than usual, they did what anyone in their position would do – they queued up to withdraw money.

For over an hour and a half, dozens of people withdrew an undisclosed amount of money from the Axis Bank ATM. The paisa party broke up when fights broke out over who would go in first, and the police decided to investigate a suspiciously long queue outside an cash-vending machine. In the words of SHO Ajitgarh Surendra Singh, there was “a huge crowd of people”.

The moral of the story? When life is handing out lemons, wait your turn patiently in line.

“Neither the bank nor its customers will be required to bear any loss as a result of this incident,” a spokesperson for Axis Bank clarified.
