Step-By-Step Guide To Exchange Rs 2,000 Notes in Bank

The Reserve Bank of India last week announced the withdrawal of Rs 2,000 currency notes from circulation but gave the public time till September 30 to either deposit such notes in accounts or exchange them at banks. Unlike the November 2016 shock demonetization when old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes were invalidated overnight, the Rs 2,000 notes will continue to be legal tender till September 30.

People who have Rs 2000 notes with them can exchange the notes in any bank or deposit them in their own accounts from May 23, 2023, onwards. The facility will be available till September 30, 2023. However, Rs 2000 currency notes will remain Legal Tender even after September 30, according to the Government.
