The central bank on May 19 had announced the withdrawal of Rs. 2000 banknotes with the deadline of exchange or return being September 30.

Extension of the deadline appears to be aimed at providing more time for people to return or exchange the notes without any hassles. The central bank has also listed out the procedure of depositing the notes after the extended deadline of October 7.

Procedure from October 8

  •  The deposit/exchange at banks will be stopped
  • Rs. 2000 banknotes can continue to be exchanged by individuals / entities at the 19 RBI Issue Offices up to a limit of Rs. 20,000 at a time.

  • Courts, law enforcement agencies, government departments or any other public authority involved in investigation proceedings or enforcement, may, as and when required, deposit / exchange Rs. 2000 banknotes at any of the 19 RBI Issue Offices without any limit.

According to RBI, the currency notes will remain to be legal even after the deadline but will not be accepted for transactions. The notes however, can be exchanged only with RBI.
