To stop the spread of counterfeit notes, which is aiding terror activities from across the border, and flush out black money, the government has decided to scrap the notes of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Tuesday. Starting midnight, these notes will only be “worth the paper they are printed on,” he said.
A proposal for new 500 and 2,000 rupee notes has been cleared by the Reserve Bank of India.
There will be no change in any other form of monetary exchange — cheque, DD, payment via credit or debit cards, he said.
Your 500 and 1000 rupee notes be accepted till November 13 at:
There are no restrictions on card payment, cheque, demand draft, electronic funds transfer. However, there is a limit on daily and weekly withdrawals. ATM withdrawals will be restricted to Rs 2000 per day and withdrawals from bank accounts will be limited to Rs 10,000 a day and Rs 20,000 a week.
No need to worry Mr PM have think about whole nation. So you can take form (in the image) that is a slip to withdrawn money but however you have to take a proof of your identity.
Valid ID proof
You will be required to carry a valid ID proof, which can be in the form of your Aadhaar card, driving license, voter ID card, passport, NREGA card, PAN card, any other ID card issued by the government. Keep a photocopy of your ID handy with you.
You will also be required to fill up a ‘requisition slip’ as per the format specified by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). A sample can be seen above:
Exchanging old notes
You need not visit the branch of the bank where you have an account in. If you want to exchange up to Rs 4,000 in cash, you can simply go to any bank with a valid ID proof. This limit of Rs 4,000 for exchanging old notes will be reviewed after 15 days.
If you are carrying more cash (old notes), you will get up to Rs 4,000 per person in cash (new notes), irrespective of the actual amount, and anything over and above that will be credited.
