NEW DELHI: The Delhi Police has rubbished the reports that Rs five lakh can be withdrawn from a person’s account for marriage if he gets the wedding card verified by the DCP of the area. A message being circulated on social media claimed that the said amount can be exchanged at the bank or RBI by shpwing a verified wedding card.
“There is NO such decision that if DCP certifies regarding marriage in family, person can withdraw 5 Lacs from their account. It’s a #Rumor!” DCP, North Delhi, Madhur Verma tweeted on Sunday.
The Delhi Police warned that people spreading such false rumours will fact stringent action.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced last Tuesday announced crackdown on black money and said that existing Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes will cease to be legal tenders from immediate effect. He also announced curbs on withdrawing money from banks and ATMs and new currency notes to replace the old ones.
For marriage , why cash payments are needed. Cheque can be given or payments can be made by debit/credit cards. Most of the organizers are evading the taxes and the axe is now on their neck.
People scrambled to get to the banks and ATMs to withdraw money and the lines have been swelling everyday.
