STOCKHOLM, Oct 22 (Reuters) - Sweden’s banks should be required to handle cash transactions, the central bank said on Monday.
“The possibility to make deposits shall be included in the concept of cash services. This is a service that consumers can reasonably expect of banks,” Riksbank Governor Stefan Ingves said in a statement.
Cash use has declined drastically in Sweden in recent years and fewer banks accept cash deposits. Some shops no longer accept cash at all.
