Watch | Bank credits crores into cabbie’s account
It was the most fortunate day of a taxi driver’s life from Punjab, when he became a billionaire. Although, it was for a day. A sum of Rs 98,05,95,12,231 had been credited into Balwinder Singh’s State Bank of Patiala (SBoP) account. That’s a little over Rs 98 billion. While passing a credit entry of Rs 200, an assistant manager (accounts) wrongly inserted the bank’s 11-digit internal Banking General Ledger account number in the amount column, however, the money was debited from Singh’s account the next day.
