NOW I AM UNABLE TO RAISE THE TOTAL AMOUNT AND HENCE I REQUESTED THE BANK TO CLOSE THE EARLIER LOAN AND ALLOW ME A NEW LOAN, BUT THE BANK AUTHORITIES IS INSISTING TO CLOSE THE LOAN TODAY AND AVAIL A NEW LOAN ONLY ON TOMORROW. FOR CLOSING THE LOAN FOR GETTING THE AMOUNT ONLY WAY IS TO APPROACH BLADE MAFIA OR THE GOLD WILL BE SELLING BY BANK FOR CLOSING THE LOAN. WHY THE BANK AUTHORITIES IS INSISTING FOR CLOSING TODAY AND AVAILING FRESH LOAN ONLY AFTER A DAY.
