Pakistan: ATMs go out of cash in Karachi ahead of Eid al-Adha – Times of India

KARACHI (PAKISTAN): Ahead of Eid al-Adha, the residents of Karachi are facing a cash crisis as automated teller machines (ATMs) have begun to run out of cash, reported Geo News on Wednesday.
Eid will be celebrated across the country on June 29 and customers are complaining that ATM services have gone down ahead of Eid.
“The ATMs are out of order before Eid. We have visited the ATMs many times since this morning but there is no cash,” said the people troubled with this issue.
Customers typically complain about the ATMs not working or running out of cash right before Eid. This typically occurs when people withdraw a sizable sum of money to pay for sacrificed animals.
This year, Eid will be observed in Pakistan on June 29 (Thursday). The day of Arafah, which falls on June 28, is included in the four-day holiday that the government has declared for the populace.
“28th, 29th a 30th June 2023 (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) for the offices observing five days working in a week; and 28th June to July 1, 2023 (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday) for the offices observing six days working in a week,” as per Geo News.
According to a statement issued by the Cabinet Division, the government had earlier given a nod to a three-day holiday on account of Eid ul Adha, Geo News reported.
