NEW DELHI: Television actress Nupur Alankar told Times of India that she was one among the many people affected by the crisis of Punjab and Maharashtra Cooperative Bank (PMC) where she has secured all her savings and is now selling her jewellery to meet her daily expenses due to PMC’s collapse.
Nupur who known for her roles in the television shows like ‘Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya Hi Kijo’ and ‘Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyann’ said that she had account in other banks but she transferred all the money to PMC account and now it was frozen and no money has left in the home and she has no other option but to sell jewellery.
“All accounts got frozen, no money at home and I was left with no option rather than sell off my jewellery. And moreover, I forced to borrow Rs. 3,000 from a fellow actor as well. And another fired transferred Rs 500 for my daily need and so far I have borrowed Rs. 50,000 from friends. We absolutely have no idea when this problem will be resolved and at the same time we have the fear that we will lose our money,” she told TOI Wednesday.
“I had accounts in other banks but a few years back I have transferred all the money to PMC and the same way my family members also had all their savings in this bank. Currently, I’m in a big financial crisis and how am I expected to survive without money? I have paid all my income taxes without delay then finally this is what happened to me,” she added.
Nupur further said that “none of the debit or credits cards is working and I’m not even eligible for a loan now. And when I say that accounts were in PMC, even the telecallers hang up.”
PMC Bank crisis was started in September, just a few days before Ganesh Chathurthi.
