    Availed the service and got 19k PKR fresh notes from NBP today. Nice service actually. I have bank accounts in 4 banks but this was an annoying request I would make on Eid and they refuse it generally.
    It was simple process and took only 5 minutes of my time, They even gave me a nice envelope to wrap the notes.
