Withdrawal and Legal Tender Status of Rs 2000 Currency Note
Attorney Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay filed the PIL. The withdrawal of the Rs 2,000 currency note from circulation and its continued legal tender status were both announced by the RBI on May 19. The bank stated that up until September 30th, existing Rs 2,000 notes could be deposited or exchanged at banks, but put a cap of “Rs 20,000 at a time”. SBI stated on Sunday that no request form or identity documentation is necessary to exchange Rs 2,000 notes. When the Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes were withdrawn in November 2016 as part of demonetisation, the central bank urged the public to deposit the new Rs 2,000 notes into their bank accounts or exchange them for notes of other denominations at any bank branch. Additionally, it advised banks to immediately stop printing Rs 2,000 notes.
