The two-day bank strike has hit banking services across the country. Nearly 15 crores cheques worth Rs 14 lakh crore remained uncleared as 10 lakh PSU bank employees stayed away from work. Unions say cash dried up at various ATMs and all government transactions came to a halt. Public sector bank employees' union called for a strike to press for an immediate revision in wages higher than what is proposed by the banks. The Indian Banks' Association which is the industry body of banks has agreed to offer a 10 percent wage hike which is an outgo of over Rs 3000 crore for PSU banks.
