Around 800 customers withdrew about Rs. 8 lakh from the ATM bus. The bus was spotted on M G Road at 5.30 pm and received a hearty welcome from tired citizens.

 “I was taking a stroll in the evening on MG Road and found that most of the ATMs were running out of cash. So, I got our mobile ATM, which serves Bengaluru Rural customers, pressed into service,” M M Chiniwar, General Manager (Circle Office), Canara Bank, told Deccan Herald.
