DelhiDesk: The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has announced the withdrawal of Rs 2,000 notes from circulation, but they will remain legal tender until September 30. The RBI has asked banks to stop giving out Rs 2,000 notes with immediate effect and has also asked banks to provide facilities for depositing and exchanging these notes until September 30. However, only Rs 20,000 worth of notes will be exchanged at a time, and only ten notes can be changed at a time. The move is aimed at reducing dependence on high-value notes and promoting digital payments. RBI had stopped printing new Rs 2,000 notes in the financial year 2018-19 itself and gradually their circulation has reduced considerably. According to RBI, the Rs 2,000 note is no longer commonly used in transactions, and due to the availability of notes of other denominations in sufficient quantity with the banks, there will be no problem in giving notes to the people.
