Telangana Petroleum Dealers Association (TPDA) has advised its customers to keep petty cash on hand or to use digital payment methods such as UPI at petrol pumps.
The increased use of Rs 2000 notes has created a significant challenge in maintaining adequate change reserves at filling stations.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) announced the withdrawal of Rs 2000 notes from circulation on May 19. The exchange and deposit window will be open until September 30, 2023.
TPDA has placed notices at several filling stations throughout the city, stating that they are running low on change and urging customers to consider using precise or reasonable denominations.
“We receive and tender change from customers only. Hence, we are extremely short of change. Hence, we solicit your cooperation by tendering exact or reasonable note denominations or opt for digital payments as per your purchase amount,” read a statement from the TPDA.
While the TPDA strives to serve customers to the best of its ability, the organization states that it cannot guarantee change availability for every Rs 2000 note.
“We try to serve you in every possible manner, but we are not responsible to provide you change against every Rs 2000 note,” the notice stated.
