Satish Mathur, Maharashtra director general of police, said they have decided to lend a helping hand to the people who have been inconvenienced at ATMs and banks.

Since the Modi government announced the shock decision to scrap the high-value denominations on November 8, there have been instances wherein hospitals and petrol pumps have refused to accept the demonetised banknotes.

Although the Mumbai police do not have a WhatsApp number, they can be contacted via their Twitter account, website and the control room numbers on the site.
