Local banks have pumped an additional QR3bn to ATMs across Qatar to meet any possible shortage of currencies during Eid holidays, Al Sharq reports. Banks have announced a five-day holiday and will resume work on Wednesday. However, branches of some banks will function in morning and evening shifts from Saturday. Enough new notes have also been made available in ATMS in denominations from QR50 to QR500 since they are preferred by many families for Eid gifts. Banks have also assigned specialised teams to meet emergency situations like loss of ATM and credit cards and maintenance requests.
