You Probably Cannot Access Your ATM Today

If you cannot access your bank accounts today, check around to find a functioning bank and transfer everything as soon as possible.

If you hold stock in a company which is having an “outage” today, sell all your shares. The infrastructure in India has been on its last legs for decades and it was never a “good business decision” to go there.
