Short on cash, these trucks are running on trust

There is a line of trucks waiting on the Varanasi-Allahabad highway. With cash in short supply, these trucks are now running on trust, like those of drivers Kailash Jat and Yadvinder Singh, who have spent an extra day here waiting for money to be transferred to their accounts. The roadside eateries and dhabas are only running on faith expecting that truck owners will pay them later. The most of the dhabas across the country are doing the same of offering food for drivers.
