Exchange old, big bank notes by 20th July:RBI to Banks and Post Offices

By on Wednesday, June 21, 2017

India on Wednesday allowed banks and post offices to exchange old, big bank notes, which are no longer in circulation, with the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in a month, provided these notes were collected by Dec. 30, 2016, a finance ministry statement said.
India's cooperative banks have also been allowed to exchange old currency notes with the RBI, if they had collected these notes by Nov. 14, the statement said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a shock move on Nov. 8 last year to ditch 500 rupee ($7.74) and 1,000 rupee ($15.48) notes - worth a combined $256 billion - that he said were fuelling corruption, being forged and even paying for attacks by militants who target India.
