My name is Vanaja. I am a 46 year old domestic help. I have been working as a domestic help for the past 22 years. They say there’s enough cash in banks for everyone. But all we get after standing in winding queues is Rs 2000 notes. What are we supposed to do when most shops are reluctant to tender change. It pains me that I have to go through so much pain to get my hard-earned money. The only respite is that we get things on credit from most of the kirana shops in our area. We have tightened our belt..

    She is a bit lucky. In rural areas, even getting food on credit is very difficult. Moreover, some of her owners may have small notes to help her sas the house owners have some banking accessibility.
