Millions of poor Thais queue up at ATMs for New Year gift

PRACHUAP KHIRI KHAN: 11 million low-income earners in the kingdom this week  have been queuing up at Krung Thai ATMs nationwide in order to withdraw a THB500 gift from the government.

Residents near Prachuap Khiri Khan on December 9 queue up at a Krung Thai ATM at a petrol pump to withdraw their gift.

Though many may have assumed they could lose the money if they didn’t withdraw and use it, a post on Facebook on December 10 by the Phetchburi public relations department page assured that the money would not be taken back if not withdrawn in a timely manner.
