Dimapur, April 30: The Confederation of Nagaland Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CNCCI) has expressed concern over non-maintenance of SOPs in ATM booth in the State and blamed the banks for not being serious about the Covid pandemic, which is in a critical phase.
In a press release, CNCCI chairman Dr Khekugha Muru and general secretary Dr Seyievilie Mor also observed that most of the ATM appears to be out of order, have no doors, no power backup and mostly seem to be operating with cash crunch, which, it said, is a big concern to the general public.
Also stating that most ATM booths are painted red with pan masala stains, urine stains and filled with dirt with zero hygiene, the CNCCI asked banks to immediately maintain basic requirements such as sanitizers, clean the ATM machines at regular intervals with disinfectants, ensure appropriate distance among customers and ensure one customer at a time inside the ATM booths, as well as maintain sufficient cash in the ATMs.
Reminding that customers are charged for the service and should be treated accordingly, the CNCCI warned it will not hesitate to pursue appropriate legal action if immediate steps are not taken within 3 days.
CNCCI further requested the general public to practice civic sense, maintain social distancing and avoid crowding inside ATM booth while availing services. (Page News Service)
