"In Tamil Nadu around 100,000 employees of nationalised/private/foreign/regional rural banks are on strike for two days - Monday and Tuesday," C.H.Venkatachalam, general secretary, All India Bank Employees Association (AIBEA) told IANS.

According to him, 90 lakh instruments worth around Rs.64,000 crore were held up because of the strike.
