As the country prepares to celebrate Eid-ul-Azha on June 29, the residents of Karachi are encountering a pressing issue with the depletion of cash in automated teller machines (ATMs).

Consumers have expressed their grievances regarding the frequent unavailability of ATM services during the lead-up to Eid festivities.

“We have made multiple visits to ATMs since this morning, only to find them out of order and devoid of cash,” shared concerned individuals.


It is not uncommon for consumers to encounter difficulties with ATMs nearing the arrival of Eid. This situation arises due to the heightened demand for cash withdrawals, particularly for the purchase of sacrificial animals.

Pakistan is set to observe Eid on June 29 (Thursday). The government has declared a four-day holiday for the public, including the Day of Arafah, which falls on June 28.
